Moraine Township Offers Free One-on-One Help Enrolling in the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace
Open Enrollment:
November 1, 2015 - January 31, 2016

Moraine Township will once again offer assistance to residents to enroll for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Open enrollment for 2016 plan year begins November 1, 2015 and ends January 31, 2016.

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.

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; or
  • select a different plan for 2016.

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. Along with the addition of new Marketplace plans arriving in 2016, existing plans may have different networks, premiums, deductibles and co-pay amounts compared to the 2015 plans.

Moraine Township wants to assist residents to avoid penalties for not having health insurance, which increase in 2016.

Appointments are available weekdays from 8:30 until 3:30; some weekend and evening appointments are also offered. To schedule an appointment call 847-432-3240.

For further information Supervisor Bassi by phone 847-432-3240 or email super@morainetownship.org.
