Get ready to cover open enrollment this fall for both individuals and small businesses under the Affordable Care Act.

A year after the launch of healthcare.gov, individuals will be anxious to see whether premiums go up when open enrollment starts Nov. 15, and for the first time, small businesses will be shopping on healthcare.gov to buy the coverage for their employees.

Tami Luhby, who covers health care for CNNMoney, will help you identify local story ideas and give you a road map to possible sources to develop them.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Identify local story ideas as to how the Affordable Care Act is affecting the delivery of health care for consumers, providers and insurers.
  • Access sources online and in-person to report local stories related to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
