Harrisburg – Oct. 29, 2014 – State Sen. Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny/Westmoreland), in conjunction with the Consumer Health Care Coalition, will be holding an information session at Penn-State Greater Allegheny on Nov. 5 to assist families in obtaining health care insurance through the federal Affordable Care Act.

“The Consumer Health Coalition will be on hand to help families gain an understanding of the insurance coverage that is available and get insurance through the federal insurance marketplace,” Brewster said.  “I encourage those who need health insurance to attend and learn about how the new federal law and state policy changes may help.”
