It's less than a month and a half until the first day of enrollment for the Affordable Care Act.  As of October 1st, millions of Americans who can't afford health insurance will have access to affordable coverage.  The Macoupin Economic Development Partnership is hosting a seminar in a few weeks to help explain to business owners what the new mandate means to them.

MEDP Executive Director Shari Albrecht says a combination of misinformation and a lack of understanding may be leading to pre-mandate anxiety for many of these business owners.

Albrecht comments

She says you don't have to be a member of the organization, or even a business owner in Macoupin County to attend.  She does, however, request you RSVP by September 6.  The seminar is September 10 at the organization's Staunton office.  Call 618-409-6044.
