Dalessandro hosting Affordable Care Act Tele-Town Halls

Dalessandro hosting Affordable Care Act Tele-Town Halls

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Rep. Andrea Dalessandro, D-Sahuarita (District 2), is organizing a series of Tele-Town Halls on the Affordable Care Act.  She will hold the forums on two days, in both English and Spanish.


The Tele-Town Halls in English will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 11:30 a.m. and at 7 p.m. The Spanish Tele-Town Halls will follow on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 11 a.m. and at 7 p.m.  Participants can call 559-726-1200 and use the code 322773. Please note this call is not toll free. Long-distance charges may apply.


Herb Schultz, the regional director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and Kim Van Pelt, a representative from St. Luke’s Health Initiatives, will join Dalessandro for both calls on Dec. 3. Theresa Gonzales, an Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System representative, will also be on the 11:30 a.m. call that day. Dr. Betsy Thompson and Roberto Diaz with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will be available for both calls on Dec. 5.


“All Arizonans deserve access to quality, affordable health care coverage. Now, with the Health Insurance Marketplace, consumers will have a place to find coverage options. There is a lot to know about the enrollment process and the differences in plans. I want to make sure that people have access to the correct information and to experts. The timing is so important right now because some people will have to find a plan by Dec. 23 to avoid a lapse in coverage.”


These events are open to the public and the press. To RSVP, email adalessandro@azleg.gov or call 1-800-352-8404, ext. 65342.
