Health Insurance Marketplace Information Sessions Begin in Wayne County
Certified Application Counselors Laura Long and Chelsea Lucchesi from WMCHC discussed eligibility requirements, documentation needed to create an account as well as enrollment deadlines.
Prior to attending the open forum at the Northern Wayne Community Library, Barbara Passarelli resident of Thompson, PA was feeling frustrated with the process of selecting a health plan, “I wasn’t even going to go through the Marketplace. But they made it seem so easy; I’m going to see what’s available.” Passarelli stated attending the program “was well worth my time.” She has already made an appointment to meet with Long and continue through the process which will give her side-by-side comparisons of plans she qualifies for.
