Legal Aid Society Releases Health Law Brochures

Cookeville area residents who want to know how the new health care law might affect them can now pick up a series of brochures put together by the Legal Aid Society. The agency has released three new brochures, which they say are intended to discuss how Tennesseans can use the new health reform law. They explain new benefits for people who have Medicare, private insurance or no insurance. The material is available for free from the organization's office in Cookeville, located at 9 South Jefferson Avenue, Suite 102. The brochures can also be downloaded from the Legal Aid Society website, http://www.las.org./ Neil McBride, co-author of the brochures, said in a news release that he hopes the material helps people get the benefits due them.
