Sen. Gina Walsh Launches Health Care Reform Resource Website in Advance of Open Enrollment under ACA
State Sen. Gina Walsh, D-Bellefontaine Neighbors, launched a website devoted to information on health reform under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on her official Senate Web page. The site guides citizens through the provisions of the ACA and how those changes in federal law benefit Missourians.
A key part of the ACA involves each state, or the federal government, establishing an insurance marketplace. There, citizens can see a variety of different insurance plans and find one that best fits their budget. Every plan offers comprehensive coverage.
Senator Walsh’s resource website walks citizens through the process of enrolling in the marketplace and finding a plan. She said she hopes the resource page can better inform the public of what exactly the ACA does and how it benefits them.
The 24-year-old from Spanish Lake, MO has been missing since Dec. 18, 2011. She was last seen in the driveway of the family's home at about 3 p.m. Roughly three hours later, Coldon's black 1998 Chevy Blazer was impounded by police after it was discovered about a 25-minute drive from her home, at Ninth Street and St. Clair Avenue in East St. Louis, IL. The keys were in the ignition with the motor running and the driver's door open.
If you, or anyone you know, has any information on this, or any other missing person’s case, please report it to police.
Anyone with information may call Detective Vogel with the St. Louis County Police at 314-615-8630.
