Kaiser hosting journalists-only web briefing on Nov. 13 to discuss ACA open enrollment period

The Kaiser Family Foundation is hosting a web briefing for journalists from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 about covering federal health reform's second open enrollment period. Open enrollment begins on Nov. 15 and runs through Feb. 15, 2015. After a short presentation, the briefing will be open to questions from journalists.

Kasier said in a release: "This year's open enrollment season poses both new and recurring challenges for consumers: How are premiums for marketplace plans changing, and what do the changes mean for consumers? Why might current marketplace customers want to consider switching plans? For those new to insurance, how can they better understand and use their coverage? And how will the law's subsidies and coverage requirements affect consumers' 2014 and 2015 taxes? Again this year, local and national print, online, television and radio news outlets will play a major role in educating their audiences about how the law may affect them and what they can do about it."
