Health Care Reform and Rural Montana

Rural Montanans are 70 percent more likely to be underinsured than Americans in urban centers. As health insurance costs continue to skyrocket, more ranchers, farmers and small business owners as well as their employees will face the loss or further erosion of their health care coverage.
Montana, and rural Montanans in particular, have a vested interest in the ongoing national debate over health care reform.  In order for Congress and the White House to fulfill the promise of delivering quality, affordable health care coverage to all Americans the unique health care challenges in rural America must be addressed.

The health care debate is in full swing and, fortunately for Montanans, Senator Max Baucus is at the center of that debate thanks to his chairmanship of the Senate Finance Committee.

On Monday, June 29th, Montana residents will have the opportunity to speak their mind on health care and hear from others dealing with America's broken health care system.  Nine communities across the state will be linked by teleconference bringing together Montanans from all walks of life to lend their voices to the call for health care reform.

Participants will learn about the latest health care reform proposals and their status and have the opportunity to share their health care stories.  The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and more information can be found at http://acscan.org/events/view/event/932 or by calling (406) 373-8490.
