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.
