Affordable Healthcare Act event set Jan. 18 in Georgetown

January 6, 2014

Citizens without health insurance are invited to attend the Affordable Care Act Information and Enrollment Assistance Event at the Sussex County Democratic Party Headquarters at 10 West Pine St. in Georgetown from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 18.

Certified marketplace guides will be available to answer questions, walk individuals through the enrollment process, and enroll them in an affordable plan that meets their needs.

This is an important opportunity for individuals and families to learn about the various plans and find out if they are eligible for federal tax subsidies that will help lower monthly costs. Individuals who currently have health insurance are also invited to attend to find out if they can access more affordable insurance.

To enroll at the event, individuals need to bring

• Birth dates of those applying for coverage

• Social Security numbers of those applying for coverage

• Paystubs, W-2 forms, or other information about family’s income

And if applicable

• Policy/member numbers for any current health coverage

• Information about any health coverage from a job that’s available to oneself or family (if applicable)

Remember that the Affordable Care Act requires every American to have health insurance. March 31 is the deadline for open enrollment in 2014.

This is a great opportunity for one-on-one assistance. For those who cannot make it Jan. 18 should contact Chris Casazza, Lead Delaware Marketplace Guide for Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care, at 302-853-5524 or
