Today on Your Call: Are you ready for the Affordable Care Act?




 On today's Your Call, we're discussing what will change under Obama's universal healthcare plan – and how California is preparing for a plan that would require everyone to have health insurance by 2014.  What are the new coverage options? Who will be most affected?  And what resources are available for those who can't afford healthcare? Join us live at 10am or email your questions to feedback@yourcallradio.org.  It's Your Call, with Holly Kernan, and you.
