ACA Health Insurance Open Enrollment
November 1st thru December 15th

The Health Planning Council’s Navigator Program is offering enrollment assistance for the Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment Fridays beginning November 10th thru the last day of open enrollment, December 15th. The event will be held beginning Friday, November 10th at 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Barnabas Center in Fernandina Beach.

Federally certified Navigators will be available to offer FREE enrollment help for adults and families or parents seeking coverage for their children. They will also assist consumers in determining if they qualify for financial assistance. Consumers who are currently enrolled in a Marketplace plan can review the new options available in the 2018 plans. Consumers who do not have health insurance can find affordable, quality coverage and get the plan they need at a price they can afford.

Every plan in the Marketplace covers the basics — prescription drugs, emergency room visits, preventative care including low- or no-cost vaccines, screening tests, check-ups and more. No one can be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition. December 15th is the last day of open enrollment and the last opportunity to choose an affordable health plan that best meets a family’s needs and budget. Consumers should call 877.813.9115 to schedule an appointment.

Consumers should stop by to find out everything they need to know including how to get help paying their monthly premium, how to start an application or how to re-enroll.
