Truman Medical Centers on Wednesday will hold a free open enrollment fair for Affordable Care Act marketplace insurance plans.
The fair will be from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Truman Rooms at TMC Lakewood, 7900 Lee’s Summit Road. Private insurance brokers, marketplace navigators and others will help people sort through their options.
Open enrollment started Nov. 1 and runs through Jan. 31 for 2016 health plans through the ACA’s HealthCare.gov website. For coverage to begin Jan. 1, the enrollment deadline is Dec. 15.
The marketplace plans are offered by private insurance companies, not the government, but come with federal premium subsidies for people with moderate incomes.
Truman said it will announce additional fairs for January at TMC Hospital Hill and TMC Lakewood. For more information, call 816-404-3040.
