Leaders from the nation’s three largest hospital associations met on Monday to reaffirm their support for the Affordable Care Act and encourage hospitals to help patients understand their health insurance options when open enrollment begins on Oct. 1.

“This is going forward. This is going to happen. I don’t think there is anything between now and the near future that I could imagine would derail it,” Chip Kahn, president/CEO of the Federation of American Hospitals, said at the Monday afternoon webcast sponsored by the American Hospital Association.
