Open Enrollment for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) begins October 1, 2013 for insurance coverage starting January 1, 2014. Unless you are already on Medicaid (in which case you might want to wait for pending NH Legislative decisions) you can enroll any time after that.
Saturday, October 5, at 2:00 pm, Derry Public Library presents the second in its series of programs to help you understand and move ahead with obtaining the coverage you may need. (Remember there are penalties for those who fail to obtain some kind of coverage.) A trained representative from the AARP will present a program of information and try to answer your questions.
After the presentation, eight people will also be able to move into the Library’s laptop computer lab to begin the enrollment process, with the computer assistance of Library staff and content assistance from a trained Assistant. This requires separate registration, and you are advised to bring along your last year’s tax forms for information you will need to complete the enrollment process.
Registration is strongly suggested for this program due to anticipated interest. (Go to our Calendar and locate the program to register — or call 432-6140 to register by phone.)
