U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez, who represents California's 46th congressional district, is hosting two town hall meetings to help guide people with the upcoming healthcare changes.

One of the meetings, designated for small-business owners, will present an overview of requirements for small businesses, information on the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) and important dates to remember.

The State of California is opening its own health-care marketplace, Covered California, Oct. 1. The plan allows those who do not have health insurance to pick up coverage at affordable rates.

"I want to make sure you and your family have all the information you will need to utilize the new marketplace," Ms. Sanchez said in a statement.
