Today, Independent Women’s Voice (IWV) announced it will host a series of “My Cancellation” town halls across the country featuring panels of healthcare experts, insurance industry leaders, medical professionals, and politicians. In response to an overwhelming outpouring of concern over the so-called Affordable Care Act, IWV launched the MyCancellation.com project to advocate on behalf of those who have lost their health insurance due to ObamaCare and to bring to life the stories of the millions affected.
The My Cancellation town-hall tour will begin on Saturday, December 7th at 12:30pm at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The panel will feature healthcare policy expert Naomi Lopez of the Illinois Policy Institute, insurance leader C. Stephen Tucker of Small Business Insurance Services, Inc., and medical professionals.
