The gift of health care

Don’t be fooled by the negative press and reports on the ACA (or Obamacare). It’s alive and well.

– The ACA (Obamacare) is currently open for enrollment for health insurance coverage.

– Subsidies are available and more than 80 percent of enrollees qualify.

– Don’t wait – open enrollment closes Dec. 15.

– There are easy ways to enroll and get assistance:

1) Through a community health center near you. For information call 228-2830 or 228-2464. Many navigators and certified assisters are available to help with free, confidential assistance on the phone or in-person.

2) Online at Healthcare.gov

3) Call 1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-889-4325)

– Health care is your right – don’t miss out.

– Remember open enrollment closes Dec. 15. If you or someone you know needs health care, cut this out and give it to them. It’s the best Christmas present you can give yourself or someone you love.
