Smart Choice: Health Insurance Workshop Offered

Smart Choice Health Insurance Flyer

The Health Insurance Marketplace opens on November 15, so it is time for consumers to choose their health insurance for 2015. Selecting a policy involves more than just looking at the monthly premium cost.  Consumers need to understand out-of-pocket costs and consider their health care needs.
On Monday November 10, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will offer a free workshop in Webster City; Smart Choice: Health Insurance is designed to help you understand your options and make the best decisions for your situation.   The workshop will be held from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Hamilton County Extension office, 311 Bank Street in Webster City.
The workshop will be led by Barb Wollan, Extension Family Finance specialist, and will be non-commercial and non-political.  It will include a review of key insurance terms and concepts and an examination of bronze, silver, gold, and platinum plans.  Participants will build skills for choosing a health insurance policy that fits their needs.  The workshop will also describe how cost assistance works using Premium Tax Credits, who might be eligible for free insurance, and where to get help with enrolling. 
Pre-register by November 7 with Hamilton County Extension: 515-832-9597.
