ATLANTIC – Enrollment for Healthcare Marketplace Exchange consumers will open on Nov. 1 and help is available through regional ACA (Affordable Care Act) Navigators.
ACA Navigators work one-on-one with individuals to complete enrollment, weigh options, and answer questions on Marketplace plans and Medicaid. “We are happy to host the Navigators at CCHS, and we encourage customers to make an appointment as soon as possible,” says Abbey Stangl, CCHS Chief Financial Officer.
All prior year’s enrollees are strongly encouraged to meet with the ACA Navigator to update information and review new plans available on the healthcare.gov website. Dec. 15 is the last day to enroll for coverage to start on Jan. 1, and Jan. 31 is the final day to sign up for 2017 coverage.
All meetings with the Navigators are by appointment only, and they are private. Consumers are asked to bring important information with them, such as addresses, social security numbers, income information, and policy numbers for any current health insurance plans for all members of the household. Also, if you have an existing account in the Marketplace, bring your login information for access during your appointment.
