Governor Dave Heineman held a press conference Wednesday morning to address changes in Nebraska's health care system.

Heineman is seeking input on Health Insurance Exchange options which are required by President Obama's federal health care overhaul law.

Heineman announced plans for eight state-wide meetings as the state prepares a blueprint for a health exchange that is due to the federal government on November 16th.

The exchanges are online markets in which consumers and small businesses can shop for health insurance. Heineman says the meetings will focus specifically on these exchanges.

Nebraskans are encouraged to attend the meetings where they will be able to ask questions of those in the health care industry and other related industries and share their ideas.

The Lincoln meetings are scheduled to take place on September 4th and September 6th. The five other statewide meetings will be held on August 27th in Gering, August 28th in Kearney, August 30th in Nebraska City, September 10th in Omaha and September 12th in South Sioux City.
