Castell will talk about the sign-up period that begins Oct. 1, the workings of the state healthcare exchange, how to shop for a health-care plan, pluses and minuses of the four levels of plans available — bronze, silver, gold and platinum — and the availability of tax credits.
Come Jan. 1, virtually all Americans will be required to have health insurance, or face fines.

Today's three seminars will be held from 10 a.m. to noon, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express, 1441 E. Washington St., in Sequim.
Two more seminars will follow in the same location from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. this coming Monday.
No reservations are needed to attend.
