The Open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act began on November 1st and runs through December 15th so now is the time to sign up for health insurance.

  • What are the options for Alaskans?
  • If you already have insurance do you need to do anything?
  • What are the changes for 2019?
  • Who needs to sign up and is the cost expected to go up?
  • How is the political landscape affecting the ACA and how secure is the program
  • What kind of help is available to navigate the process?

Please join Line One Co-Host, Prentiss Pemberton and his guests, United Way of Anchorage COO, Sue Brogan, and Lead Navigator, Jane Straight, for a discussion about how the ACA works, how you can sign up, where you can find help, and how the political climate is affecting healthcare in America.
