Events will provide information on high risk insurance

Novant Health is again partnering with Inclusive Health to educate and enroll members in the federal and state high risk pool.
The events are expected to draw potential applicants for the health insurance program which was created to provide insurance to individuals with pre-existing medical conditions and to those who have been uninsured for over six months.
North Carolina insurance agents will be on hand to answer questions, give monthly premium rate quotes, complete enrollment applications and to compare plans.
Wednesday, May 16, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Rowan Regional Medical Center, Café Rowan Meeting Room, 612 Mocksville Ave.
Monday, May 21, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Forsyth Medical Center, Conference Center, 3333 Silas Creek Parkway, Winston-Salem.
Wednesday, May 23, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Thomasville Medical Center, Senior Link Room, 207 Old Lexington Rd., Thomasville.
The state created Inclusive Health as an affordable option for individuals with pre-existing medical conditions who lack access to group coverage or other government programs like Medicare or Medicaid. It also covers North Carolinians who have exhausted COBRA and trade displaced workers. In July 2010, Inclusive Health began administering the new temporary federal high risk pool known as the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Pool or PCIP, introduced by the Affordable Care Act. It targets individuals who have been without insurance for at least six months. With rates for both programs established by law, premiums are designed to be lower than traditional insurance for individuals with medical conditions.
Anyone interested in attending the enrollment event is encouraged to visit the website, www.inclusivehealth.org, which includes a list of items to bring to enrollment events. www.inclusivehealth.org ~ North Carolina Health Insurance Risk Pool, Inc.
