"Understanding the Affordable Care Act: Seminar for Legislative Staff"
Nearly 100 legislative staff participated in an Aug. 28 seminar on health care reform, organized by the Center and UCLA Government and Community Relations. The event, "Understanding the Affordable Care Act: Seminar for Legislative Staff," was held at the California Community Foundation in downtown Los Angeles and was specifically tailored to the needs of constituent services and health policy staff of the California delegation. Center Director Gerald Kominski, as well as Shana Alex Lavarreda, who directs the Center's Health Insurance Studies Program, and Dylan Roby, who directs the Center's Health Economics and Evaluation Research Program, helped legislative staff prepare for the questions they will receive from their constituents -- individuals and businesses -- as the Affordable Care Act is implemented in coming months. Cynthia Carmona, the director of government and external affairs for the Community Clinic Association of LA County, joined the panel to discuss the safety-net role clinics will play for the remaining uninsured.
