Sussex County Holds Healthcare Enrollment Day on March 26, 2014
Sussex County Healthcare Enrollment Day will take place on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, at Sussex County Community College, One College Hill Road, Newton, NJ, in E Building, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Sussex County Department of Human Services, NORWESCAP, US Department of Health and Human Services Region II, Newton Medical Center, Sussex County Community College and the New Jersey Hospital Association have worked in collaboration to make this important event available.
Sussex County residents are encouraged to participate in "Healthcare Enrollment Day" to learn more about the Health Insurance Marketplace. The Marketplace is a new way to find health coverage that fits your budget and meets your needs. Every health insurance plan in the new Marketplace will offer essential health benefits. You can compare plans based on price, benefits, quality and other factors important to you before you make a choice.
"Healthcare Enrollment Day" is open to all Sussex County residents without health insurance or for those residents who would like to explore other health insurance options through the Marketplace. Certified Applicant Counselors will be available to answer questions and assist individuals and families in the enrollment process.
Since open enrollment for health insurance ends as of March 31, 2014, this event is a great opportunity for county residents to secure health insurance. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, as of February 2014, "Over 4.2 million Americans have signed up for affordable plans through the Marketplace."
