With all the trouble individuals are having trying to access the Healthcare Marketplace website, sessions by the Fulton County Cooperative Extension to help navigate insurance options are coming at a good time.
Fulton County Cooperative Extension will offer Affordable Care Act information sessions next week to assist residents, small businesses and their employees. Those interested can register for one of the free information sessions. These sessions will be led by a University of Georgia (UGA) health navigator assigned to Fulton County to assist with helping individuals and small businesses complete eligibility and enrollment forms during. Residents should call (404) 332-2400 to register for a session.
The Health Navigator system is designed to help residents decide on the best health insurance to meet their needs. It offers assistance to apply either electronically or by paper to establish eligibility, enroll in coverage and potentially qualify for an insurance affordability program.
