Extra help available for navigating Healthcare.gov

If you have questions about the new insurance marketplace or need help with your application, the Flint Hills Community Health Center-Lyon County Health Department have scheduled two meetings next month to help.

Marketplace Navigators, staffers trained to help residents with the changes coming through the Affordable Care Act, will be at the Emporia Public Library from 1 to 4 pm Monday and again from 11 am to 2 pm on Nov. 16.

www.Healthcare.gov, the federal online source for information on the new insurance marketplace, has had a slew of problems since it was rolled out Oct. 1. It may be mid-November now until the website operates smoothly.

For information about the upcoming seminars, call the Health Center-Health Department at 342-4864 or go online to www.flinthillshealth.org.
