Attend An Affordable Care Act Forum Sept. 12, Oct. 22 or Nov. 14

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law.  According to the S.C. Department of Health and Human Services, this law expands health coverage and puts in place comprehensive health insurance reforms.  One of the main components is increasing access to affordable care.
