November 26, 2013
Franklin Memorial Hospital, in collaboration with Western Maine Community Action, is hosting two one-hour information sessions followed by limited one-on-one free assistance in signing up for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace.
Anyone with an interest in learning more is invited to attend. Organizers are hoping to help area residents who are uninsured or underinsured and don’t qualify for MaineCare or other government programs get enrolled in an affordable health plan that is accessed at www.healthcare.gov.
The information sessions are taking place on Wednesday, December 4, 5–8 p.m. and Tuesday, December 10, 3–8 p.m. in the Bass Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital.
The Health Insurance Marketplace is a new way to find health coverage that fits one’s budget and needs. Through the Marketplace, residents can access quality health plans, make apples-to-apples comparisons between different options, and access new tax credits that could lower monthly premiums
To sign up at an information session with assistance from a certified application counselor or navigator, please come with the following: Social Security numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants); birth dates; pay stubs, W-2 forms, or wage and tax statements; policy numbers for any current health insurance; and information about any health insurance you or your family could get from your jobs.
For additional information about these sessions, call a patient financial advocate at Franklin Memorial Hospital at 779-2777.
Free one-one-one assistance in signing up for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace is also offered by appointment by calling either of the following: Western Maine Community Action at 1-855-806-7333 and Franklin Memorial Hospital Patient Financial Services at 779-2777.
