Local residents with questions about the Affordable Care Act attended a Sept. 25 forum in Bellevue sponsored by the Washington State India Trade Relations Action Committee (WASITRAC), with the support of the Asian Counseling and Referral Service, and other APA and health groups.

Seattle and King County Public Health, the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Washington Health Care Authority were also on hand to answer questions from the public.

The event was an opportunity for members of the community to ask questions about the changes in the health care act. The forum was moderated by Debadutta Dash of WASITRAC and ACRS and Sofia Aragon of the Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs and the Washington State Nurses Association. The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders also supported the effort. (end)
