Galef to Hold Health Care Forum on Feb. 6

Small businesses and individuals still have time to sign up

Assemblywoman Sandy Galef will host a forum to address the Affordable Care Act in New York State.  Panelists will discuss the best way to identify a good fit for small businesses and individuals who have not yet set up health insurance through the New York State marketplace, who may have lingering questions, or who want to find out about how to avoid being the target of fraudulent schemes.

Expert panelists include John Ravitz from the Business Council of Westchester, Danielle Holahan from the New York State Health Benefit Exchange, and Michael Reisman from the New York State Attorney General’s Office.

“This is an opportunity for my constituents and small businesses to make sure they are in compliance with the federal law by the end of March 31 which is the deadline to sign up for health insurance,” said Assemblywoman Galef. “I hope this panel discussion, plus the navigators and enrollment specialists who will be in attendance, will be of great service to local residents and business owners and operators, and I encourage all who are interested and who may need this guidance to attend.”

The Affordable Care Act and the New York State of Health event will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 6, at Croton Village Hall, 1 Van Wyck St., Croton-on-Hudson 10520 (off of Old Post Road). If weather is inclement, call Galef’s district office at 914-941-1111 or the Village of Croton at 914-271-4781. Contact Galef at galefs@assembly.state.ny.us or by phone at 914-941-1111.
