Every health need met

From the October 28, 2013 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


On the evening of September 24, three members of the Christian Science Committee on Publication’s US Federal Office were joined by Kevin Ness (General Counsel of The First Church of Christ, Scientist) as moderator, in an 80-minute live online “town hall”-style meeting to primarily answer questions from Christian Scientists on how the US “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” — known as the ACA — may affect them. Signed into law by President Obama in March 2010 and designed to make health care more accessible and affordable, this comprehensive health-care reform law impacts individuals, employers, and insurance companies, and includes a mandate for individuals who can afford it to be enrolled in a health insurance plan or else pay a tax penalty.
