Get Covered America says 43 percent of the 40 million uninsured Americans do not know about their new health insurance options. Tim Sweeney, director of Health Policy at GA Budget & Policy Institute (GBPI), will talk about the current state of health care in Georgia and the benefits of Medicaid Expansion for Georgians. The GBPI says about 650,000 of the 1.8 million uninsured Georgians could qualify for health insurance if Georgia expanded Medicaid.
The event will be at the Charles D. Switzer Library (formerly Central Library) at 266 Roswell St. Marietta. Refreshments will be provided.
