Center Hosts Open Enrollment Events; Get Guidance on ACA Insurance Options

pwhealth_burwell-lg-134During the Affordable Care Act (ACA) open enrollment period, Nov. 1 to Jan. 31, Greater Prince William Community Health Center will host a series of  marketplace enrollment events. Each features trained care coordinators who can walk consumers through the application process for ACA Marketplace insurance or Medicaid. The majority of the coordinators are bilingual, speaking English and Spanish.

The first event takes place Nov. 1, 12 noon to 4 p.m., at 9705 Liberia Avenue, Manassas, Va. Light fare will be provided. Additional events will be held as follows:

4379 Ridgewood Center Drive, Woodbridge 22192: Nov. 7, Dec. 5, Jan. 9 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

9725 Liberia Avenue, Manassas, 20110: Nov 21, Dec 12,  Jan 23 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“For many area residents the Affordable Care Act offers their first introduction to health insurance, or to receiving coverage for preexisting conditions.” says Center Executive Director George Barker. “Sorting through various plans, income qualifications and possible tax credits can be daunting. Our care coordinators are trained to help people with the application process, finding the right solution for their unique situation.” He added that last year, the Center assisted 1,300 individuals in obtaining health coverage during open enrollment.
