How will the Affordable Care Act affect you and your community?

The University of Missouri Extension Center in Madison County is offering information about the health care law that can help families, individuals and businesses understand their options and responsibilities.

The event is part of MU Extension’s Health Insurance Education Initiative.

“The Health Insurance Education Initiative will help Show-Me State citizens understand their health insurance options and learn how to get help in their own communities if they choose to enroll in Missouri’s health insurance marketplace,” said Brenda Procter, associate professor of consumer and family economics for MU Extension.

A website, at, provides educational materials and links to information.

“The website is a source to learn factual, unbiased information about the changes in health insurance that are required by the law,” Procter said.
