You hear so much about health insurance; what to do, what not to do, but do you really know what it all means? Here is your chance to find out! On Saturday, March 1, 2014, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will have members of Healthcare Marketplace available at the Senior Life Center, 240 Veterans Memorial Parkway, from 8:30 a.m. 11:30 a.m. to answer questions regarding the Affordable Care Act and assist in registration.

Join us for this exciting event to learn more about the Health Insurance Marketplace. The Health Insurance Marketplace is a new way to find coverage that fits your budget and meets your needs. Whether you’re uninsured, or just want to explore your choices, the Marketplace will help find coverage that’s right for you.

When you apply for coverage in the Health Insurance Marketplace, you’ll need to provide the following information:

  •   Social Security Numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants)

  •   Employer and income information for every member of your household who needs coverage (for

    example, from pay stubs or W-2 forms Wage and Tax Statements)

  •   Policy numbers for any current health insurance plans covering members of your household

  •   A completed Employer Coverage Tool (Visit HealthCare.gov for this document) for every job-based

    plan you or someone in your household is eligible for. (You’ll need to fill out this form for coverage you’re eligible for but don’t enroll in.)

    Open enrollment ends March 31, 2014. For additional information visit www.HealthCare.gov or call 1-800-318- 2596.
