NOTICES

TIME SENSITIVE: Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment shortened to 45 days for 2018
Moraine Township will once again offer assistance to residents to enroll for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Open Enrollment begins November 1, 2017 and ends December 15, 2017.

Trained and Certified counselors are available to work one-on-one with residents to help them understand their options, balance their medical needs and budgets, compare coverage and costs, and help ensure that enrollees receive the premium subsidies and cost-sharing reductions they may be income-qualified to receive.

In prior years residents have had 90 days for open enrollment, extending into January of the next year. This year open enrollment ends December 15.

"We are very concerned that many participants in the Health Insurance Marketplace will not be aware of this abbreviated open enrollment period and will miss out of health insurance for all of 2018 if they are not enrolled by December 15," notes 5-year Certified Application Counselor volunteer Barbara Altman.

Residents who are currently enrolled in health insurance plans through the Marketplace have two options. They can:

  • re-enroll in their existing plan for another year;
  • select a different plan for 2018
Enrollees may find it beneficial to learn about changes that may have taken place in their existing plan, or review details and compare costs of alternative plans.

Appointments will be available weekdays plus some weekend and evening hours. To schedule an appointment call 847-432-3240.

MORAINE TOWNSHIP FOOD PANTRY INVITES PUBLIC TO THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOC WHEN GIFT GIVING
Moraine Township, set to open its new client choice food pantry in early 2018, has announced a unique giving opportunity for those who'd like to help make the new space complete and find the perfect gift for the person who has everything!

The pantry has established a "wish list" of necessary but unusual items needed to equip its new client-choice Pantry. "We're hoping the community will think outside of the box when gift giving this holiday season and give these items in someone's honor to help our Township's struggling families for years to come," said Township Supervisor Anne Flanigan Bassi.

"With 27% of our Highland Park / Highwood elementary students from low-income families and 6,000 resident-visits to our pantry in the last 12 months, food insecurity is a reality in our community," noted Township Trustee Amy Zisook. "The items on our wish list are necessary to equip our new Pantry serve our client population."
