Local Organizations Help With Health Care Enrollment

Updated:

 

There are many questions out there about health coverage and all the changes with the Affordable Care Act. Now local agencies are trying to help with informational sessions.
  
The Bettendorf YMCA is one such place. Employees are there to help those trying to sign up for President Obama's Affordable Health Care Act.

We sat down with a woman that needed a lot of questions answered. She was worried her current insurance would expire under the new health care, and it won't, but if it did she is qualified for a low cost insurance.

"I look forward to not having to worry about coming up with the funds to get the insurance," said Julie Jensen of East Moline. "I know there's going to be kinks along the way but I hope everything will go smooth."

Places like Genesis as well as the YMCA have navigators to assist patrons with the enrollment process.
