Program: How Can We Improve Obamacare In Illinois?

Speaker: Jillian Phillipsi

Ms. Phillips, of the Campaign for Better Health Care, will provide an update on Obamacare in Illinois. As reviewed in the January OWL Newsletter, we need to INFORM, IMPLEMENT, AND IMPROVE in order to eventually get the kind of health care system that OWL has fought for since our inception in 1980.

As we know, some in our country are spending much money to spread disinformation about the Affordable Care Act/ Obamacare, and to create panic on the basis of the some of the initial problems encountered. All of us recognize that the system is not yet ideal -- but we believe this system has promise to move us toward "Medicare for All."

We will also focus on how to advocate most effectively for the governance system desired. Jillian wants your stories about experiences with Obamacare! Share with her at healthcare-stories/share/
