Description

Anna Odegaard, MPP, a Health Policy Analyst at SEIU Healthcare Minnesota, a healthcare workers union, has been integrally involved in designing Minnesota's Health Insurance Exchange in recent months. The Affordable Care Act requires each state to develop an exchange as a way of offering health insurance to people who are not insured through their workplace. In her talk, Ms. Odegaard will discuss how the Exchange will work and the big decisions involved in designing it. Since her talk will happen in the middle of the legislative process, she will have very current updates on the issues the legislature faces regarding the Exchange. This event is part of the 2013 Social Science Conference, "Health and Inequality: Social Determinants of Health"
