Today on Your Call: How is the Affordable Care Act affecting your health coverage?


On today's Your Call we’ll talk about the implementation of Obamacare.  President Obama gave the clear message that Americans who were happy with their health plans could keep them. But now millions of people are receiving letters of cancelation from their providers, because their plans don’t meet the ACA requirements.  So what has been your experience with health coverage?  And what do you want to know about how the Affordable Care Act will affect you?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.

Laurel Lucia is a Policy Analyst at the UC Berkeley Labor Center, where she has been doing research related to the Affordable Care Act for more than four years
