One City Insured:

Ward 3 Health Insurance Exchange Public Meeting

The Mayor’s Health Reform Implementation Committee (HRIC) cordially invites members of the public to join Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh in a community dialogue on the “future of health care in the District of Columbia” during Health Insurance Awareness Month in November. This meeting, which is open to the community, will be on Monday, November 14, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, at the University of the District of Columbia, Natural Sciences Building 44, Room A03, 4200 Connecticut Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC. Parking is available. The nearest Metro station is Van Ness-UDC on the Red Line.

President Barack Obama signed the health care reform bill into law on March 23, 2010, and the HRIC has been working since then—to head up the effort to implement the law in the District. The HRIC is encouraging you to attend its next meeting to discuss what health reform means for you:

  • Improved access to health care for DC residents NOW
  • Help paying for health insurance for residents and small businesses
  • Opportunities to help shape health care in the District

The HRIC is inviting you if you’re a small business owner; a single parent or married with children; uninsured or underinsured; insured through your job; have a pre-existing condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure or cancer; a civic association or ANC leader; of if you run a health ministry. This meeting is part of a series of forums and other events conducted by the HRIC to garner public input. A lot of information is available online on health reform—what it is and what it will mean for you, your family or business—at www.healthreform.dc.gov. The HRIC needs as much input as possible to make sure that the District’s health insurance marketplace offers high quality insurance at a price you can afford.

For more information on the Ward 3 One City Insured Public Meeting, please contact HRIC staff, Dorinda White at (202) 442-8992 or dorinda.white or the Office of Councilmember Mary Cheh, (202) 724-8062.

In addition, the final ward-based meeting for 2011 has been scheduled for November 17 at the Reeves Center located at 2000 14th Street, NW. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m.
