KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Cheered on by Mayor Mark Holland, community leaders here kicked off an effort Tuesday to enroll thousands of Wyandotte County residents in the new health insurance marketplace created under the Affordable Care Act.
“This has been a big win at the federal level,” Holland said of health reform. “And now, we have the opportunity to make it real on the grassroots level here in Kansas City, Kan.”
