WASHINGTONCongressman Bill Owens will hold a telephone town hall today to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act. A representative from New York State of Health, New Yorks state-run health insurance marketplace, will join him to answer questions related to the states rollout of the Affordable Care Act. The event will occur from 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Thursday evening.
One of the most important things I can do is connect my constituents to factual information about federal policy that directly affects them, Representative Bill Owens said. New York state has been a model for successful implementation of the insurance marketplace under the health care law, and I look forward to teaming with the state to answer questions and receive feedback from my constituents about the new options available to them.
