Affordable Health Care Navigator Discussion
Fridays from 12pm to 4pm and Tuesday November 5 at 6pm
NOPL @ Brewerton
With the Affordable Care Act’s health exchanges going into effect, and concern over coverage, prices, and issues with the healthcare.gov website making the news, what better time to get the enrollment answers you need.
An Affordable Health Care Navigator will be visiting NOPL to explain the law, answer general questions and if necessary, set up individual appointments. The navigator will be at NOPL @ Brewerton on Fridays from 12pm to 4pm (as well as an additional discussion on Tuesday, November 5th at 6pm).
Learn about Qualified Health Plans, advance premium credits, cost sharing reductions, small business marketplace, and Medicare / Child Health Plus, and more. Get the answers you need before exchanges begin (currently planned for January 1) and open enrollment ends (scheduled for March 31).
