Broadlawns Announces New Round of Health Insurance Marketplace Enrollment Fairs

 

On-site counselors to answer questions, assist participants with enrollment throughout 2015

What:

Broadlawns Medical Center has scheduled eight enrollment fairs through February 2015 as staff members continue to assist individuals to enroll through the Marketplace. Beginning this Saturday, November 15, the fairs will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every two weeks. Eight certified enrollment counselors will be available to help participants enroll in the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan.

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 individuals wanting to enroll through the Marketplace. The counselors will sit down with patients to discuss their personal situation, review options and eligibility, and answer 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
  • 2013 Income Tax Returns
  • If working, the last 30 days of pay stubs and employer tools
  • Green card or I-94
  • Proof of citizenship, if applicable
  • 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, please call 515-282-2246.

Who:

The one-on-one sessions are available to assist individuals for all Medicaid programs as well as the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan and Marketplace enrollments for individuals up to 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).
