Broadlawns Announces New Round of Health Insurance Marketplace Enrollment Fairs


Broadlawns Medical Center has scheduled seven enrollment fairs through March as staff members continue to assist individuals in the complex healthcare reform transition. The fairs will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every two weeks, beginning this Saturday, Jan. 11. Twelve certified enrollment counselors will be available to help IowaCare participants enroll in the new Iowa Health and Wellness Plan.

Any individuals needing assistance in signing up for a new plan or looking for answers about changes to their healthcare plan are encouraged to attend. Translators will be available to assist anyone who needs their services.

Certified Broadlawns staff will provide one-on-one guidance to IowaCare participants seeking information. The counselors will sit down with patients to discuss their personal situation, review options and eligibility, and answer any questions that arise during the enrollment process. Broadlawns will try to sign up participants with online applications, but if technical problems occur, Broadlawns staff will help participants complete paper applications.

Individuals attending an enrollment fair should bring:

  • Current ID
  • Social Security Card
  • 2012 Income Tax Returns
  • If working, last pay stub
  • Email address (to receive notice of decisions, requests for additional information, etc.)

For more information on the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan, please visit www.dhs.state.ia.us. To schedule an appointment with a financial counselor, call 282-2246.

The one-on-one sessions are available to:

  • Iowans ages 19 through 64, with annual income up to and including 100 percent of the federal poverty level – about $11,500 for an individual and $23,500 for a family of four.
  • Medically frail Iowans who do not have access to employer-sponsored insurance coverage and have an income up to and including 133 percent of the federal poverty level, which is $15,300 for an individual and $31,300 for a family of four.
