LOGAN – West Virginians who are interested in free, in-person help in learning how they might enroll or re-enroll in health insurance under the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are invited to attend an information and enrollment session on Wednesday, November 18, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Chief Logan Recreation Center, 505 Conference Center Drive, in Logan.
WV NaviCare, working under a cooperative agreement with the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will provide information about how the new health insurance exchange operates under the ACA. They also will show people how they can sign up for low-cost health insurance plans. No appointment is necessary and there is no charge for this educational session or enrollment assistance.
Financial help is available when signing up for health insurance through the Marketplace. In 2015, 86 percent of West Virginians qualified for financial help in obtaining health care coverage.
For those that are already enrolled in Marketplace health insurance, new plans and prices are available. Those with current Marketplace coverage should pick a new plan or re-enroll in their existing plan by December 15, 2015 to prevent a lapse in coverage.
More information is available at: www.wvnavicare.com. That site includes resources for enrollment help, a calendar of enrollment events and an overview of facts and other information about health insurance, the Marketplace and the Affordable Care Act.
