OFA to begin education sessions on Obamacare in Hillsborough County libraries

We're now just three weeks away from the healthcare online exchanges going live. These are the portals that will allow many of the uninsured to gain access to care, via President Obama's health care reform bill passed in 2010.

Organizing for America (OFA), the community organizing project of the Democratic National Committee, is now working with coalition partners such the American Academy of Pediatrics and Doctors for America to host information meetings about the exchanges and the law itself in Hillsborough County libraries over the next six weeks.

The Orlando Sentinel reported last month that 10 insurance companies have received federal approval to sell Floridians health plans on the federally assisted health exchange, but insurance commissioner Kevin McCarthy says that not all companies will sell plans in all 67 Florida counties.

Open enrollment begins October 1.
