On October 1, 2013 the Skyline College Health Center organized a special presentation to educate the community on the Affordable Care Act, “OBAMACARE.”

The hour and a half presentation by Tyler Smith, from Covered California was attended by over 100 people including students, family members, staff and faculty.  The presentation focused on the Affordable Care Act “OBAMACARE,” the law; eligibility and enrollment process. The PowerPoint presentation was followed by a question and answer session where many of the attendees were able to glean the information they needed to proceed with the enrollment process.

Our goal is to provide as much information as possible regarding changes being brought about by the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the impact it will make in our community.

With this goal in mind the Health Center’s objective is to encourage everyone to seek the information they need to make the right decisions when looking at health care.  We strive to educate everyone about the benefits and federal services available to them.

Due to the success and continued need for information an additional presentation will be held on November 13, 2013.  Keep your eyes open for more information regarding our next Affordable Care Act event.
