Chaney Visits Meridian

Meridian, Miss. Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney spoke at the EMBDC's Business Before Hours meeting Tuesday.

Chaney talked to small business owners about what they can expect here in Mississippi when the federal government enacts its federal health care program, which is currently set to be in place by Jan. 1.

"Individuals need to be very much aware of what they are going to be facing beginning January 1, 2014, and why it's important to know now since you have an open enrollment date," Chaney said. "So if you have a pre-existing condition, you're an individual and you don't have insurance and coverage, this is a good time to be able to buy it."
