Health insurance sign-up events
St. Charles Community College will be offering events providing information on health insurance, as well as letting individuals sign up for healthcare plans. The events will be held Thursday, Nov. 2; Tuesday, Nov. 7; and Tuesday-Wednesday, Nov. 14-15, at SCC located at 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Dr. in Cottleville.
The Affordable Care Act requires Americans to sign up for health insurance, but the process can be very confusing, said Paul Roesler, professor of social sciences at SCC. The open enrollment period begins Nov. 1, yet many people have questions about the process. This is why Im excited to have these experts come to SCC for these events. This is an important service to our community.
The first event, Health Insurance 101, is an informational presentation by Grace Chen, ACA navigator, at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, in the auditorium of the Daniel J. Conoyer Social Sciences Building. Chen will explain the ins and outs of Missouris health insurance exchanges, including how to sign up for insurance on the exchange.
ACA Enrollment Days will be the following weeks, Tuesday, Nov. 7, and Tuesday-Wednesday, Nov. 14-15, at SCC. These sign-up days are by appointment only. At these full-day events Grace and other navigators will help students and community members individually sign up for healthcare plans. Students and other community members can sign up for available time slots here: https://grace-chen-aca.youcanbook.me/.
If time slots fill up, SCC will consider adding more ACA Enrollment Days, or people can schedule times directly with the navigators.
