Health care reform is changing health care and health insurance. Change can be scary and confusing. We know that North Dakotans have many questions and concerns.
We’re here to help explain the changes and what they mean. We will hold informational sessions for individuals and families in eight cities across the state in October 2013. All the meetings are free and open to Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota members and all North Dakotans. Two sessions will be held in each city each day (one each in the morning and in the afternoon) for a total of 16 total sessions.
The meetings are designed for those who buy insurance directly from insurance companies, do not have health insurance or are not offered insurance from their employer. The meetings will help answer commonly asked questions and will help people find the best insurance coverage options available.
Limited seating is expected, so those who are interested are encouraged to pre-register for the meeting they plan to attend.
