Agencies offer help in signing up for health care

If you missed out on signing up for Obamacare earlier this year, you have another opportunity now through  Feb. 15, 2015.

The federal government passed the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, to provide a way for every American citizen to obtain healthcare.

The Cabarrus-Rowan Community Health Centers will  offer free counseling and assistance in the registration process at the following times:  McGill Family Medicine,, 202D McGill Ave, NW, Concord, NC 28025. Weekdays registration times:  Monday-Wednesday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m.

Community Care Clinic of Rowan County, 315-G Mocksville Ave, Salisbury, NC 28144, Weekday registration times:  Mondays only, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

 To schedule an appointment to register for healthcare under this plan, call 704-792-2260.

To help prepare, you can visit HealthCare.gov to review detailed information about each health insurance plan offered before applying.

By answering a few questions, such as location and family size, consumers will be able to compare plans and get an estimate on how much financial assistance they may qualify for when shopping for coverage, without needing to submit an application.

The insurance companies that will be providing the coverage include Blue Cross – Blue Shield, Coventry, and, starting this period, United Healthcare.

Residents of Cabarrus and Rowan Counties can call 704-792-2208 if they have questions about the coming registration schedule.
