Missouri Health Centers statewide effort to help citizens enroll in healthcare plan

Posted on Monday, December 2, 2013 at 9:35 am

Crider Health Center will join nearly two dozen clinics throughout Missouri this week in a campaign to help residents enroll in affordable health coverage through the new Health Insurance Marketplace.

On Wednesday, Dec. 4, Crider Health Center will host an educational enrollment event at the Wentzville facility located at 1032 Crosswinds Court beginning at 5:30 p.m. “Stop, Shop and Enroll” is a weeklong event designed to make choosing a health insurance plan as easy as possible.

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 within their budget. Most people will be eligible for discounts that make insurance affordable at nearly every income level. And you can’t be turned down because of your health condition.

Those interested in learning more about options available to them through the Affordable Care Act or who would like to sign up for coverage at the “Shop, Stop and Enroll” event should call 636-332-8329 for an appointment.

To have insurance coverage in effect on January 1, 2014, you must enroll in an insurance policy by Dec. 23, 2013.
