ACA Enrollment Help Continues at Bridgewater Library

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is in place, having taken effect January 1, 2014.  People who have begun but not finished the medical insurance enrollment process may still be looking for assistance.  The Bridgewater Library, a part of the Somerset County Library System (SCLS) continues to host enrollment assistance sessions for individuals, families and small business owners through Wednesday, April 30, 2014.

The scheduled days and times are:
Wednesdays, 3:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Saturdays, 10:30 am to 4:00 pm

The Bridgewater Library is located at 1 Vogt Drive, Bridgewater, NJ.  Further information is available at 908-526-4016 ext. 105.

The enrollment assistance programs are being offered for free to all Somerset County residents.  Partnering with CognoSante, on behalf of the US Department of Health, SCLS is offering this service to help local residents in obtaining the health care insurance coverage and information they may need.
Applicants will need to attest to their inability to complete the application process through HealthCare.gov, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, the Health Insurance Marketplace Call Center, the State Medicaid Agency or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Agency.  The following documents are needed for applicants in order to complete the enrollment process:• Current healthcare insurance (if applicable) and policy numbers• Information about health care coverage available through current jobs• Social security numbers (or documentation for legal immigrants)• Employer and income information verification for every member of household requiring coverage (pay stubs or W-2 forms are acceptable)

“We recognized a need for assistance in navigating the ACA application process as it can be confusing.  By partnering with CognoSante, we are happy to provide this service,” noted Mun Hwa Chen, Head of Adult Services.
