Free Insurance Counseling Sessions for Medicare/Affordable Care Act
and Free Health Information Training Sessions

by Kathleen Traci, Publicity - PLVC Wellness Committee

The PLVC Wellness Committee is sponsoring a health insurance counseling session and health information research training at the Bay Club on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, 1-4 p.m.

Medicare Beneficiaries: Meet with a volunteer from SHIBA (Statewide Health insurance Benefits Advisors) who will provide free, unbiased, and confidential assistance with Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) and Medigap insurance policy choices. Most Medigap policies can be reviewed and changed throughout the year. Individuals who are approaching 65 and new to Medicare may enroll in Part B and D within three months of their birthday.

Health insurance coverage for those under 65 - Meet one-on-one with a volunteer In-Person Assister (Navigator) who is trained and certified through the Washington Health Benefit Exchange to assist with enrollment in a health insurance plan. Learn if you are eligible for a tax subsidy to reduce your premium or for the expanded Apple Health (Medicaid) program. Through the ACA (Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare) most uninsured people under age 65 are required to enroll in a healthcare plan. Applicants need to bring with them Social Security numbers; income information and birth dates of all individuals on their tax return, including income information for children under age 18 who are required to file a tax return; name and address of employer; information about current health plans of any family member (Ins. Company, Group # and ID #); a credit or debit card to pay for first month’s premium. For legal immigrants seeking health care coverage, a passport, alien, or other immigration number is needed. All personal information shared with In-Person Assisters is confidential and secure.

Health Information - PLVC Health and Wellness Committee volunteers will be available to train individuals in navigation and utilization of free on-line medical databases and to introduce them to the PLVC Wellness Committee’s Health Information Notebooks available at the Beach Club and the Bay Club. Counseling and training sessions are on a first-come-first-served basis.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Kathy Traci, 360-301-5378, tracipkt@aol.com.
