West Virginians who are interested in learning how they might obtain health insurance under the provisions of the Affordable Care Act are invited to attend a presentation and enrollment session Wednesday at Cross Lanes YMCA, 5113 Rocky Fork Road in Cross Lanes.
The presentation will begin at 4 p.m. and enrollment assistance will be available from 4 to 7 p.m.
TSG Consulting, working under a cooperative agreement with the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, will provide information about how West Virginia's new health insurance exchange operates under the ACA. It also will show people how they can sign up for health insurance. There is no charge for this educational session.
More information is available at www.ACAforRuralWV.com. That site includes guidelines for programs, tax incentives, health plans and calculators to determine approximate costs and savings. It also includes resources for enrollment help, an overview of facts and other information about the Affordable Care Act.
