Missouri Health Centers to Help Residents Enroll in Affordable Insurance
Date:12/2/2013

Jefferson City, MO (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

Community Health Center of Central Missouri (CHCCM) will join nearly two dozen clinics throughout Missouri in a campaign to help residents enroll in affordable health coverage through the new Health Insurance Marketplace.

“Stop, Shop and Enroll” is a weeklong event designed to make choosing a health insurance plan as easy as possible. From Dec. 2 to Dec. 7, CHCCM will sponsor an enrollment fair to help residents without access to job-based insurance find the insurance plan that is right for them.

Trained counselors will be on hand to guide people through the online application process. Counselors can help with setting up an account, filling out the application and choosing a health plan that meets the family’s needs and fits the budget. Most people will be eligible for discounts that make insurance affordable at nearly every income level. A pre-existing health condition will not result in ineligibility.

People interested in enrolling at a local health center should call the clinic for an appointment. Callers should specifically request to speak to a counselor about applying for health insurance coverage. Counselors will be available at these times (other days/times may be available by request):

  •     CHCCM Jefferson City, 3400 W Truman Boulevard, Monday Through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  •     CHCCM Fulton, 561 Commons Drive, Tuesday Dec 3 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  •     CHCCM California, 104 N Gerhart Road, Friday Dec 6 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  •     CHCCM Linn, 1016 E Main St., Monday Dec 2 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Applicants should bring information about family members who will be covered and documentation of income. More information is available at http://www.Healthcare.gov.

To have insurance coverage in effect on Jan. 1, an insurance policy must be enrolled in by Dec. 23. Enrollment is still possible after that date, but insurance coverage won’t take effect until Feb. 1 or later. Nearly all Americans are required to carry health insurance beginning next year or pay a tax penalty.

To avoid that penalty, people can Stop, Shop, and Enroll -- Stop by CHCCM. Shop for a health plan. Enroll in coverage that puts health care within reach.

For questions, please contact the CHCCM enrollment department at 573-632-2777 ext 8053.
