National Health Reform Educational Workshop Series

National Health Reform Educational Workshops
Congress passed new national health care reform legislation in March 2010, with many new regulations taking effect this year. Champaign County Health Care Consumers organized a series of in-depth workshops throughout Fall 2010 to provide consumers with detailed information on the most asked about health reform topics. These workshops were designed to provide you with consumer friendly information about the national health reform law and how it will affect you.
