North Carolina creates Health Care Coaltion to prepare for Affordable Care Act

State officials in North Carolina may not agree with 'Obamacare', a segment of the health care reform act passed by Congress in 2010, but they are doing everything in their power to make sure they are prepared for October 1st. There are less than two months to organize, so what is the solution?

The resulting coalition is called the Federal Marketplace Stakeholder Leadership Group and its members are brainstorming ways that will make the upcoming health care reform roll-out go as smoothly as possible. Four insurance companies will be offering South Carolina residents options to purchase a plan through the federal marketplace.

The state is heading in the right direction, meeting with health insurance companies, as well as setting up a directory for residents to direct their questions to, but will that be enough?
