The Clinton Foundation announced Wednesday (Aug. 28) that former President Bill Clinton will give an address on the Affordable Care Act one week from today on Sept. 4.

“Clinton will give remarks from the Clinton Presidential Center on the critical role a high quality, affordable and accessible health care system plays in the United States and any country’s economic and social well being,” a media advisory from the foundation said.

Clinton’s address will take place at Great Hall of the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock at 10 a.m. The event is an invitation only one and his comments will be broadcast live at

The former President has been supportive of the federal health care law, and his administration was unsuccessful in passing a similar overhaul of the nation’s health insurance system during his first term in office.

His remarks will take place about one month before the opening of the ACA’s insurance marketplaces, which will launch on Oct. 1, 2013.
