FAIRHOPE, Ala. (WALA) - With the kick off of open enrollment for the Affordible Care Act Marketplace less than a month away, health experts like James Roberson have been out educating the community on what they need to know before October 1 rolls around.
The crowd at the James P Nix Center in Fairhope had several questions about how Medicare plays into the health care law. Roberson said the main takeaway from the forum was that the open enrollment was only for individuals who don’t already have insurance.
