Questions answered at ABC's of Affordable Care Act event

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - A Greenville church group held a free informational session on how to register for different insurance coverage options for the Affordable Care Act Tuesday morning.
    
It was at the Sheppard Library in uptown Greenville.
    
About four dozen people showed up to learn more.
    
The N.C. Churches Outreach Network brought in healthcare experts and a spokeswoman with U.S. Representative G.K. Butterfield's office. They gave a 45-minute presentation, then answered questions.
    
Organizers say they hope it clears up any confusion.

"I'm hoping that what they receive today is more knowledge than they had and those who didn't have none at all, I'm hoping the questions that are being asked is giving them more on what is affordable care and the market place. I want folks to know how important this is and how they need to get engaged with this," said Rodney Coles, CEO, Churches Outreach Network.

Presenters also explained ways people familiar with the complicated process can volunteer to be healthcare mentors in their community.
