Central Georgia Health System Assists Those Needing Health Coverage

Central Georgia Health System Assists Those Needing Health Coverage

Second Enrollment Blitz Scheduled for March 13 

MACON, GA (Wednesday, March 12, 2014) - With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), qualified individuals in the United States may obtain insurance by April 1, 2014. Many people in the central Georgia community now have access to healthcare coverage for themselves and their families for the first time.

To assist central Georgians in signing up for health coverage on the Healthcare Marketplace Insurance Exchange, Central Georgia Health System will host an enrollment blitz at Central Georgia Home Health, 3780 Eisenhower Pkwy. in Macon, on Thursday, March 13 from 8:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

A trained health insurance navigator and certified application counselors will be available to assist those who attend in finding individual healthcare coverage that fits their budgets and meets their healthcare needs. Those attending will have the opportunity to ask questions and process their application for enrollment in healthcare coverage.

In order to obtain coverage through the marketplace for 2014, those in need of insurance must enroll by March 31, 2014. Those who do not enroll by this date will have to wait until open enrolment in October 2014 to apply for coverage that will be effective January 1, 2015.

“Our first Healthcare Enrollment Blitz, which was held in December, was an enormous success. Many were able to enroll for coverage, and many more were able to have their questions and concerns addressed. This is an exciting time for many people who have never had the opportunity to obtain health coverage, but the insurance exchange can be a bit of a challenge. Central Georgia Health System is committed to helping members of our community as they navigate the exchange, and assisting them in finding the best coverage to meet their needs,” said Peggy Boyles, Assistant Director of Patient Access for The Medical Center of Central Georgia.

Those taking advantage of these events should come prepared with their Social Security Number (eligible immigrants may bring their document numbers); employer and income information for everyone in the family (for example, paystubs, W-2 forms or wage and tax statements); policy numbers for any current health insurance; and information about any job-related health insurance that may be available. Those with computer access should also have a valid email address and know their username and password.
