Do you need health insurance? The Outreach and Enrollment team at (Ocean Health Initiatives), a federally qualified health center, are scheduling appointments to help the general public and its patients with enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace, which begins November 1, 2015, and ends January 31, 2016.
Sasha Andino and Carmen E. Lopez, associates of the Outreach and Enrollment Department, and other qualified OHI staff will answer questions, explain any changes, and help individuals sign up for health insurance. Bilingual certified application counselors are available by appointment only.
Appointments can be made at four OHI sites: Lakewood Health Center, 101 Second Street, Lakewood; Toms River Health Center, 301 Lakehurst Road, Toms River; Manahawkin Health Center, 333 Haywood Road, Manahawkin; Manchester Health Center, Lakehurst Circle Center II, 686 Route 70, Lakehurst.
