Obama Care-Local

While the roll out of the new Affordable Healthcare legislation is continuing, it's too early yet to determine the local impact on Winona Health.

Winona Health C-E-O Rachelle Schultz says Winona Health does expect an increased demand on services with more people becoming insured.

Schultz says a large unknown at this point is the actual affordability of the new federal program.

Schultz also says she expects the focus to be shifted more to primary care and preventive medicine once the new program begins after the first of the year.
