Do you still need health insurance? Open Enrollment under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) ends February 15, 2015. For those who enroll by this date, coverage can begin as soon as March 1. To help area residents with options, Ocean Health Initiatives (OHI), a federally qualified health care center, and Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus, Lakewood, are partnering to present a community forum Thursday, January 29, 2015 from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Ocean Health Initiatives, 101 Second Street, Lakewood, N.J.
Bilingual Certified Application Counselors (CACs) will be available to describe insurance options under the ACA and help attendees choose a plan that best suits individual and family needs. Experts will also discuss options under Medicaid and Family Care. Qualified staff will also answer questions, explain any changes, and help individuals sign up for health insurance.
