Health care forum held in Joplin

Updated:

The public was invited to a health forum on Wednesday in Joplin.  It was hosted by Mercy Hospital at the Holiday Inn.

The free forum aimed to reduce confusion when it comes to updates of the Affordable Care Act related to Missouri.

Around 175 people attended the forum, including individuals from businesses, Missouri Southern, Joplin Schools and non-profit organizations.

"Health insurance is so important, if you think about it, we are all one accident or one healthcare disaster away from financial distress," says Julie Beatty of Mercy.  "Having a health care plan and insurance is important."
