San Jose State University’s Health Insurance Education Project team will host their first question and answer information sessions next week. The sessions are open to students, faculty, staff and their families. It will be a chance to ask questions about the Affordable Care Act and for those in attendance to find out if they qualify for free or low-cost health insurance.
