Kamiya will provide a general overview of the Affordable Healthcare Act, how it will change health insurance coverage and various alternatives available for individuals and employers. He will explain how Obamacare will affect your Medicare coverage and will also address questions such as:

“How can I get help to pay for my medical insurance?”

“Will I have to pay a tax if I don’t have medical insurance and, if so, how do I prove I have insurance?”

“I’ve been turned down for medical insurance before, so how can I qualify under Obamacare?”

For employers, Kamiya will explain how Obamacare will affect providing medical insurance for employees.

The seminar is open to the public. Refreshments will be provided. Admission is free and no reservations are required. Translation will be provided for the Japanese-speaking. Kamiya will be available to answer individual questions for a limited time at the end of the program.

This event is co-sponsored by the Gardena Pioneer Project, the Japanese American Bar Association and the Senior Citizens’ Bureau of the City of Gardena. For further information, contact Karen C. Uyekawa at (213) 894-3235.
