Today is the day! Baxter Regional Medical Center is hosting an Education
and Enrollment Fair to assist Baxter County residents with enrollment
in the Health Insurance Marketplace from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. today in the
Ortman Room, next to the BRMC Cafeteria.
andldquo;We are pleased to offer an Education and Enrollment Fair for affordable
health insurance,” Mary Eakin of the Arkansas Department of Health
said. “This is an opportunity for residents to learn about the new
health insurance law and get enrollment assistance.”
The public is invited to attend to learn more about the health insurance
options available through the new Health Insurance Marketplace, get information
about the financial assistance now available to help pay insurance premiums
and meet with trained, licensed guides for enrollment assistance.
To be eligible to enroll, a person must be between the ages of 18 and 64,
live in the U.S., and must be a U.S. citizen or lawfully present. Anyone
who plans to enroll should be prepared with:
- Birthdate and Social Security Numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
for each member of household
- Employer and income information for every member of the household (for
example, pay stubs, W-2 forms, wage and tax statements)
Anyone who doesnandrsquo;t have health insurance is encouraged to attend
this event to learn more about insurance options.
