Iowa Health Care Expansion Bill to be Signed Thursday

The Iowa Health & Wellness Plan will be signed into law this Thursday, June 20.

All Iowans are invited to attend the bill signing ceremony, which will take place at 9 a.m. at the Mason City Clinic-Atrium, 250 S Crescent Drive, Mason City. The Mason City Clinic is on the Mercy Hospital campus with the main entrance facing east.

Expanding affordable health care for low-income working Iowans was a top priority for Senate Democrats during the 2013 session. With the Governor’s signature on Senate File 446, the Iowa Health & Wellness Plan will provide quality care focused on improved health to 150,000 Iowans who are currently uninsured.
