SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

On Thursday CenCal Health held an Affordable Care Act seminar to clearly explain the program, which begins January 1st.

Bob Freeman, CEO of CenCal, said, "There is just so much confusion. There is so many aspects on the Affordable Care Act that it is really hard to grasp all of it at one time."

It was a chance for doctors and their staff to learn exactly what the Affordable Care Act will mean for them on a daily basis. The agency will be right in the middle of the new plan when Obamacare takes effect, and they want everyone to be prepared.

"We are hoping to clear up the confusion the doctors' offices may have, how this is going to be implemented, and to point them in the right direction to get the answers, then they can help educate their patients," said Freeman.
