Volunteers go door-to-door to push for Obamacare sign-up

LANSING, MI (WTVB) -Volunteers went door to door in some west Michigan neighborhoods this past weekend, informing residents about the affordable care act and how they may be eligible for some of its provisions. They called it the “Get Covered America Day of Action”. Open enrollment in the new health insurance marketplaces begins in two months.  It’s estimated that two-thirds of the people who might benefit from Obamacare have no idea of what it could mean for them.

The Michigan Senate plans hearings this week on the Medicaid Expansion bill worked up by a task force over the last few weeks.  State health officials and the Governor’s office say they need to speed up the process or the state may miss deadlines that could cost it millions in federal funding. A vote is tentatively set for the end of August
