On October 1, Open Enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace begins under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Marketplace is for those individuals who do not have insurance to go in order to buy affordable, comprehensive healthcare coverage. The website at www.healthcare.gov will allow consumers to compare premiums and plans from various insurance carriers to make an informed decision to meet their needs. The Open Enrollment period begins October 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014.
The Saint Peter’s University Hospital ACA Compass Program is ready to assist our patients, and Saint Peter’s employees and their families through this transition. Saint Peter’s is a Certified Counselor Organization with the Marketplace, which means we have certified staff ready to assist. Our patients will be able to find the assistance they need at both the main hospital in the Resource Services Department, located in the main Admission office, and at the Family Health Center at 123 How Lane, New Brunswick.
During this time, we will be having extra team members ready to help!
There is a lot of confusion and misinformation about the Health Insurance Marketplace, but Saint Peter’s is here to help navigate the process. If you have any questions, please contact Michele Lucas at 732-745-8600, ext. 6056 or Daniel Halpin at 732-745-8600, ext. 5197 in Resource Services.
