Lo­cal an­swers to new law

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCAL BRIEFING -

Con­fused about how the new health care law will af­fect you?

Of­fi­cials at Cen­tral Health, for­merly known as the Travis County Health­care District, said they heard from fo­cus groups that peo­ple were con­fused about the law and wanted help un­der­stand­ing it. To that end, Cen­tral Health on Mon­day posted a Q&A about the law on its web­site that cov­ers a va­ri­ety of topics with a lo­cal ac­cent. Find it at www.travis­coun­tyhd.org/health­care_re­form.html.

“This is our at­tempt to reach out from a lo­cal per­spec­tive … to help peo­ple bet­ter nav­i­gate the changes com­ing forth with health care re­form,” district spokes­woman Christie Garbe said Tues­day.

The Q&A cov­ers topics such as how the law af­fects those who have in­surance, those who don’t and those who work for small busi­nesses in Cen­tral Texas that don’t of­fer em­ployee cov­er­age.
