The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

Please join us tomorrow at 10 am to help decode and answer those lingering questions you still have about the Affordable Care Act. Nothing in America is required by law for you to own. The Affordable Care act changes that statement on January 1st, 2014. You will be required by law to own health insurance on January 1st, 2014. If you cannont afford health insurance you will be subsidized. If you do not own health insurance you will be penalized. If you have questions or need help i am available.

We will be joined by Lisa Zamosky, WebMD’s Health Reform Expert to assist us in answering questions about the new changes taking place on October 1st (Open Enrollment).

Over the next 3 months you will see one of the largest PR campaigns in this country's history promoting the Affordable Care Act. I spent 2 days out of my week last week getting certifed to be able to help people understand their options, apply for coverage and get enrolled.

Prior to this, I did not realize the amount of changes that were taking place. If you do not have health coverage in 2014 you will be penalized on your 2014 taxes. This affects indivduals and business's as well.

I am putting together a podcast show devoted to answering questions about the Affordable Care Act. Please email me at chensley@preceptwm.com any questions that you have about the Affordable Care Act and I will answer them for you on this episode.
