Carrie Rogers tried to learn as much as possible about the New Affordable Care Act.

“What’s affordable for one person may not be affordable to another,” said the Manteca resident.

Rogers was among the dozen or so in attendance at Thursday’s “The Affordable Car Act & You” presentation sponsored by Doctors Hospital of Manteca.

This first-ever Q&A session featuring Covered California – in partnership with the Department of Health Care Services, sharing a goal of providing quality health care coverage to all despite a pre-existing condition – was held at the Manteca Transit Station, which opened in July.

“We now have this room for the community to meet,” said Joe Kriskovich, who is the City of Manteca’s Director of Administrative Services.

Tomas Morales Rebecchi indicated that the state is fortunate to have Covered California as the coordinator for the Affordable Health Care Act.

“We already have 35,000 signed up and expecting 60,000 by the end of the month,” said Rebecchi, who handles community outreach for Doctors Hospital.  “And, unlike at the federal level, we’ve no problem with our state website (www.coveredCA.com).”
