On October 1, the health insurance marketplace opens under the Affordable Care Act. It is my pleasure to welcome Congressman John D. Dingell, Jr. to Champions of Care. Congressman Dingell represents the 12th district in Michigan, which includes parts of Wayne and Washtenaw Counties, and is the current Dean of the US House of Representatives. In June of 2013, he became the longest-serving member of Congress in American history. As a lifetime advocate for protecting public health, Congressman Dingell authored the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010. He will talk about the benefits of the healthcare law and also how to navigate the health insurance options that will be available when the marketplace opens on October 1 of this year.
