If you’re interested in signing-up for health coverage on the Health Insurance Marketplace—but you find the information overwhelming or confusing—Brownwood Regional Medical Center (BRMC) is ready to help.
The BRMC will have Certified Assisters on-site at Brown County Health Department on Wednesday, November 16 from 9-11 am and on Thursday, December 1 from 2-4 pm to share information, answer questions, and to schedule free appointments for application assistance (OR) help individuals begin the enrollment process.
Open Enrollment runs November 1 – January 31, 2017. This marks the federal government’s fourth annual campaign to extend healthcare coverage to more Americans, specifically to those who otherwise wouldn’t have access to services or who would face a financial crisis due to medical bills.
“We have helped hundreds of individuals enroll on the Marketplace since it first launched four years ago,” said Chip Camp CEO. “It’s very gratifying to help individuals enroll knowing they will be able to access healthcare when they need it. It’s a relief for so many people.”
Brownwood Regional Medical Center is also offering free one-on-one assistance throughout the Open Enrollment period at the hospital. Residents can schedule appointments by calling 325-649-3331, or can book an appointment online at www.GetCoveredAmerica.org/connector. Certified assisters will help with plan comparisons, determining any tax credits or discounts, and filling-out applications.
