10/30/13 As you know, there are a lot of questions about the Affordable Care Act and the new Health Insurance Marketplace. At Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center, they are committed to being a resource for our community. They are excited to kick off the first of 5 education sessions in Plymouth about health care reform beginning on November 13. These sessions are free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires everyone legally living in the U.S. to have health insurance beginning January 1, 2014. It also gives millions of individuals with too little or no insurance, access to health plans at different cost levels. In addition, the law provides financial assistance to those who qualify based on family size and income.
Fewer than 1 in 4 individuals are aware or have enough information about the Affordable Care Act. That’s why Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth is offering these education sessions that are free and open to the public.
The Community Education Sessions in Plymouth will be held on Wednesday, November 13th from 5:30 to 6:30 at the Marshall County Council on Aging office at 1305 West Harrison Street. On Wednesday, December 4th the session will be held in the Education Center of SJRMC in Building #4 at 1915 Lake Avenue from 5:30 to 6:30. The next date is Wednesday, December 18th in the Community Resource Center at 510 West Adams Street from 5:30 to 6:30. Two sessions will be held in January. On Wednesday, January 15th the education session will be held in the Education Center at SJRMC office building #4 at 1915 Lake Avenue from 5:30 to 6:30 and then again on Wednesday, January 29th in the Community Resource Center on West Adams Street from 5:30 to 6:30. Seating is limited so registration is a must. Call 855-887-5633 to register.
SJRMC has established a Marketplace Center in the Community Resource Center at 510 West Adams Street that provides community members with information on how to access available health insurance plans. You do need to schedule a consultation by calling 855-887-5633.
Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center will continue doing what needs to be done to ensure the needs of our community are being met. For more information, go to www.sjmed.com/aca.
