Affordable Care Act enroll-a-thon Feb. 11 in Burlington
BURLINGTON, February 3, 2015 – North Carolinians who need help enrolling in affordable health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act can call toll-free 1-855-733-3711 or 1-800-672-5834 to schedule a free, in-person meeting with a certified health care navigator who can guide consumers through the enrollment process. Open enrollment runs through February 15.
Navigators from Legal Aid of North Carolina will be conducting an enroll-a-thon February 11 at the Alamance County Health Department at 319 North Graham-Hopedale Road in Burlington. Appointments are required and may be scheduled by calling 1-855-733-3711 or 1-800-672-5834.
Navigators are trained to help consumers understand how the Affordable Care Act will work for their families, apply for premium subsidies and coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace, and enroll in qualified health plans. Ninety-two percent of North Carolinians who enrolled or reenrolled in health care coverage by December 15 received financial assistance.
Consumers enrolling in health plans need to provide social security numbers and dates of birth for themselves and their family members, employer contact information (if applicable), policy numbers for current health insurance coverage (if applicable), and proof of household income.
