Lake County News

Local and federal officials offered an update on new health care coverage options for community members under the Affordable Care Act and explained how to apply at a Saturday forum. Close to 100 people attended the forum – titled, “The Affordable Care Act: What’s happened so far, what’s happening and what’s coming next” – held at the Lakeport Senior Center on Saturday afternoon. Congressman Mike Thompson, whose office organized the event, was unable to attend due to having what his district representative Brad Onorato called “minor” surgery in San Francisco on Jan. 21.
