The Obama Administration is slowly implementing mandates created by the Affordable Care Act but recently delayed one applying to some businesses. This hour on Focus, we’ll talk about what’s been delayed, what changes will be implemented as planned and what you should expect if you need to purchase health insurance through one of the exchanges this fall. Health insurance coverage through Illinois exchanges will be available for purchase October 1, and this hour on Focus, John Katsinas of Barham Benefit Group and Claudia Lenhoff of Champaign County Health Consumers join host Jim Meadows.

Do you have questions about the Affordable Care Act and how it’s going to affect you as more and more mandates take effect? We welcome your calls and questions this hour on Focus!
