Munson Healthcare Sponsors Health Care Reform Forum
Traverse City Chamber of Commerce, TV 7 & 4, help offer program on Sept. 30

Munson Healthcare is sponsoring a community forum that will help educate the region’s residents on health care reform.

In conjunction with the Traverse City Chamber of Commerce and TV 7 & 4, Munson Healthcare will present “Understanding Health Care Reform” at Northwestern Michigan College’s Milliken Auditorium from 7 - 8 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30. The forum will be broadcast live on TV 7 & 4.

An expert panel, Jeff Rubleski from Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Michigan and Marti Lolli of Priority Health , will be on hand to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act and changes occurring as a result of the law.

Hosts Marc Schollet and Kristin Lowe will take questions from the studio audience, as well as online, via Twitter and by email.

Pre-registration for the forum is encouraged because of limited seating. Members of the studio audience at NMC are encouraged to arrive by 6:45 p.m. for introductions and seating arrangements before the 7 p.m. air time.

Registration is available at Those without internet access may register by contacting Andi Wagenschutz at or (231) 995-7101.

Audience members also will be able to access information available at Milliken Auditorium, and meet with local health professionals who can answer questions on how to access the health care marketplace under the new regulations.
