League of Women Voters forum looks at health insurance

The League of Women Voters of Kitsap’s next public forum is called “Health Insurance: The Complicated Issues.” It will consider many aspects of health insurance now that the sign-up phase for the Affordable Care Act has closed.

The meeting will take place from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 26 at Poulsbo City Hall, 200 Moe St. NE. Topics will include networks, why costs are increasing, where to seek assistance, how Kitsap County is handling the increase in patient load due to the Affordable Care Act, what individuals and businesses need to know when buying health insurance and an overview of the single-payer approach.

Panelists include Nancy Schnoor, CFO of Peninsula Community Health Services; Wendie Pond, a health care billing and coding consultant; Stephanie Kirk, an independent insurance agent and producer/broker with J.C. Madison Inc.; and Vicki Decker of the speakers bureau for Health Care for All Washington.
