Lovelace Health Plan to hold meeting about health care reform

If you have any questions about health care, Lovelace Health Plan wants to help. They'll be hosting a town hall meeting Wednesday night in northeast Albuquerque.

Starting October 1, millions of people will be able to get private health care plans. This, of course, is under President Obama's healthcare overhaul. Lovelace wants to make sure it's easy for New Mexicans to understand how this will impact them.

At Wednesday night’s town hall meeting, Lovelace will explain the Patient Protection Act and will teach people how to get health care.

"When you think about the overall state of New Mexico, we have about 2 million people, out of the 2 million, there's about 420,000 individuals that are not insured today," said Marlene Baca with Lovelace Health Plan.

The meeting will be held at the Embassy Suites at 1000 Woodward Place NE from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. It's free and open to the public.
