On Point is headed to Nashville on March 29 to tape the show before a live audience with public radio’s WPLN. We’re excited! The topic is implementing the Affordable Care Act – “Obamacare” – and we would love your questions to put to our Nashville panel…

Nashville is an vibrant medical center. What’s your question on how the Affordable Care Act is actually going to roll out this year? Are you a doctor? A hospital manager? Are you prepping now for Obamacare? What’s your question? On how it’s going to work? On its impact? Its reach? Its side-effects?

Are you a patient, wondering exactly how you will interact with the new system? What’s your question?

We welcome all questions, great and small. Post your questions right here, and we’ll use them to interrogate our terrific panel.

If you’re in Nashville, we hope we’ll see you there. And if you’re not, here’s your chance. Fire away! (And please include your name and where you’re from!)

Many thanks,

Tom

Scottish voters have rejected independence and decided that Scotland will remain part of the United Kingdom.

It dashed many Scots' hopes of breaking free and building their own nation. (AP Photo/David Cheskin)
