Health care enrollment continues


Tuesday, November 6, 2018

The open enrollment period is shorter again this year. There is only a six-week period to enroll, and the current deadline is Dec. 15.

The good news is that you have people in your community who are trained to provide assistance to consumers at no charge. Greene County Health Care has specially trained, certified application counselors at each of its facilities in Greene, Pitt and Pamlico counties.

As part of our free, in-person assistance, we can answer questions about Medicaid, Health Choice, Medicare and the Health Insurance Marketplace. Our bilingual enrollment specialists can also help complete enrollment or re-enrollment applications and help navigate different insurance alternatives and programs.

We may also direct consumers to other services they need, including food banks, housing information and appropriate city and county services in the area.

GCHC is a community health center and is not affiliated with any insurance company. The information we provide reflects fair, accurate and impartial information to help the consumer.

During the enrollment period, GCHC has extended our hours of services. We also continue to accept appointments and members of the community who walk in to our facilities. You do not have to use GCHC as a patient to receive this service. To make an appointment with one of our enrollment specialists, call 252-531-8200.

You may also apply for or renew your Marketplace coverage by visiting healthcare.gov or by calling the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596. To find other in-person assisters in your area, visit localhelp.healthcare.gov.

Recent Daily Reflector editorials and comments in the Public Forum have raised my eyebrows and my concerns about the sustainability of the human race. How can we continue if we are our greatest enemy? Every person I know has, and is entitled to, a unique perspective and personal opinion. Our…

A recent submission in the Public Forum suggested that to follow Jesus, I must vote Republican.

For me it is a life-long struggle and my highest calling to be in the fold of the good shepherd. Nonetheless, I don’t believe that scripture suggests that I can take my stand beneath the cross of…

In 1986, internationally-renowned singer Janet Jackson made the inspirational song, “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” Elected officials should actualize the meaning of that song. Oftentimes, elected officials make shallow promises, kiss babies, and hypocritically “press the…

Consider the following Republican presidents: Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Each a two-term, or twice-elected president; each a more disastrous presidency than its predecessor on the list (Nixon posing a threat to the Constitution via Watergate, Reagan posing a greater threat…

Orange County District Court Judge Beverly Scarlett recently compared Silent Sam to Hitler and, by extension, the human suffering of slaves to that of the Holocaust. Based upon her remarks, it is not clear how well Judge Scarlett knew Sam or Adolf Hitler.

Statistically speaking, Sam had not…

What’s with you, Vic Corey? One second you are crowing how Trump is the reason for you being richer, the next you are, as always, worshipping your idea of a “new Christian.”

First, the U.S. is not a business; it is a country. Trump’s planned bankruptcies, his finding ways…

Is it any wonder that the attendance is dropping in the NFL when you can only pay the head man, Roger Godell, $40 million a year and have as many as five commentators sitting around a table in their $500-plus suits as they blurt out that which you and I are looking at? Not to mention another two…

With regard to the letter to the editor from David French concerning illegal immigration, I would respectfully ask Mr. French to do more research before citing any more misinformation. According to the Cato Institute and other sources, “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration” (2017)…

With mid-terms behind us, the next Greenville election is for 2019 mayor and City Council. For six months following the 2017 election, I made no public statements and granted no interviews, preferring instead to observe actions of the new mayor and council.

Folk ask if I’ll run and perhaps…
