A program on health-care costs for businesses and individuals will be sponsored Thursday by the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce.
The free session will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.
“The Affordable Care Act has left many of us facing high, up-front deductibles, costly co-pays, as well as new financial issues,” Jeff Van Tienen of the Chamber Insurance Trust, event co-sponsor, said in a statement publicizing the forum. “It has also created additional liabilities for the business owners and employees when faced with a critical illness or disability. You can’t predict the future so it’s a good time to plan ahead.”
“This seminar is in response to the constant barrage of questions I get about Obamacare,” said Matthew Mandell, the chamber’s executive director. “So I went to the Chamber Insurance Trust for the answer and we put this informative session together.”
