Extension Programming Approaches for Farmers Under the Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) changed how Farmers and Ranchers might insure themselves, their families, and their workers. What are the new options under the act? How do operators decide whether it makes sense to participate? How can they make informed decisions about their options? This webinar will feature innovative approaches from three Extension professionals actively delivering ACA-related programming for farmers and ranchers, and engage participants about perspectives from their stakeholders. Participants will obtain a road map of existing resources for Extension professionals to use in their programming.
