Secretary Sebelius highlighted the multiple ways Wisconsinites can learn about the Health Insurance Marketplace and enroll for coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Secretary Sebelius also saw some of the different education efforts underway to inform Milwaukee-area community members about their options as she meets with local assessors and consumers planning to enroll in coverage through the Marketplace. The secretary’s visit coincided with PCHC hosting a groundbreaking ceremony for its new Lisbon Avenue Health Center on Friday at 3522 W. Lisbon Avenue. PCHC’s new 42,000 sq. ft. facility will be built directly next to the existing 8,500 sq. ft. clinic. Pictured with Secretary Sebelius are Rosa Brazzle (center) and Tina Chang (right).
