Rite Aid to provide information on Affordable Care Act
The Associated Press | 09.09.13
Starting in October, independent insurance agents will be at 2,000 Rite Aid stores around the country.
(Hoboken, NJ) -- People seeking information on the new federal health care law will be able to find it at stores operated by a Cumberland County-based drugstore chain.
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says independent insurance agents will be at 2,000 Rite Aid stores around the country starting in October.
Sebelius made the announcement earlier today at a Rite Aid in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Rite Aid chairman John Standley says the agents don't work for any of the insurers who offer policies under the new law but will earn a commission for policies they sell.
Republican New Jersey U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan held a news conference across from the Hoboken Rite Aid and said the health care law is already causing chaos in the economy and called for a boycott of Rite Aid.
