You have questions about the Affordable Care Act.

We have answers.

The Salt Lake Tribune, in partnership with KCPW 88.3/105.3 FM, Wednesday night at 7 p.m. will hold a town hall meeting that aims to provide a forum where you can get specific answers about the new law now that open enrollment in the insurance marketplace — or exchange — it created has begun.

The town hall, which will be in Nancy Tessman Auditorium at the Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City, is just one piece of The Tribune's comprehensive look at the new law and its implementation.

Stories published in recent weeks include a guide to Utah's exchange, a consumer primer on the ACA, a look at uninsured young adults and their obligations under the law and an analysis of how the law is affecting small business.

We've looked at what you'll pay under Utah's exchange and reported on the enrollment period's rocky start.

In addition, through our Trib Talk video chats at sltrib.com, Jennifer Napier-Pearce has provided live access to experts answering questions on many of these topics.

Napier-Pearce also will moderate and take questions during Wednesday's town hall, which will be broadcast live on KCPW and at sltrib.com.

Panelists include Rep. Jim Dunnigan, R-Taylorsville; Jason Stevenson of the Utah Health Policy Project; Celia Nash of Team Nash Insurance; and Nathan Checketts of the Utah Department of Health.

You can send questions in advance to healthreform@sltrib.com or simply show up and participate. Town hall
