Reading – State Sen. Judy Schwank and State Rep. Mark Rozzi are hosting a free Affordable Care Act (ACA) enrollment event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Muhlenberg Township Building at 210 George Street on Friday, Nov. 22. Pennsylvania’s Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman will open the event and be available for media questions.
During the two-hour session, healthcare consumers will have access to expert help signing up for ACA or Medicare coverage. Medicare enrollment ends December 7 and the open enrollment period for ACA ends December 15.
Participants will need documentation to verify his or her annual income (a W-2 or pay stub) and a driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID.
“Pennsylvanians need access to affordable healthcare if they are to live healthier and more productive lives,” Schwank said. “This event is meant to give the citizens of Reading and Berks County another opportunity to sign up for healthcare.”
“The deadline to sign up for healthcare is coming up fast. We need to make sure everyone has access to the resources necessary to choose the best health care plan for themselves and their families,” Rozzi said. “It can seem like a daunting process, but help is available.”
This event is FREE and open to the public.
