Affordable Care Act assistance available at Bossard

Staff Report

GALLIPOLIS — To assist people in Gallia County with questions on the Affordable Care Act, Bossard Library will have a certified navigator available at the Library between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Nov. 17 and again Nov. 20.

The navigator will conduct one-on-one consultations about health insurance, the Health Insurance Marketplace, qualified health plans, and public programs, including Medicaid. The navigator will also help individuals determine which plan is right for them and assist with the enrollment process.

The navigator will not recommend one plan over another, but will give the individual their options and provide explanations of the ACA.

Due to the varying amount of time each consultation may take, the consultations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Persons wanting to consult with the navigator must have the following information available at the time of the consultation: birth dates of all individuals in the household; Social Security cards (or Social Security numbers) of all individuals in the household; and proof of income (last year’s federal income tax return and/or pay stubs for the current year) of all individuals in the household.

For more information, contact Lynn Pauley at Bossard Library at 740-446-7323, ext. 229.
