Coastal Family Health Center offering assistance with ACA open enrollment

Coastal Family Health Center is offering one-on-one assistance to those needing health insurance during the Affordable Care Act open enrollment. It opened yesterday and will accept enrollments up until January 15th.

Open enrollment for individuals needing health insurance using the Affordable Care Act can enroll or re-enroll with the help of Coastal’s certified application counselors.

This service is available to the community free of charge. The goal of the Affordable Care Act is to improve healthcare and health insurance quality, access, and affordability. Coastal Family Health Center Director of Marketing and Communication Emily Burke said, “With this particular program being able to offer to the community, it just allows more access to health care to those that are struggling, who might need help, who don’t have the resources to get the access. So, we try to make it as easy as possible and offer this service to the community. We know that everybody is well aware of the Affordable Care Act and the health coverage that it contains.”

Those interested in this free service can call 877-374-4991 to schedule their appointment Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
