Saint Michael’s To Host Health Insurance Registration Event

Newark, NJ—To help uninsured individuals gain better access to affordable and quality health coverage, Saint Michael’s Medical Center will host a special Health Insurance Registration Event on Saturday, December 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Admissions Department, at Saint Michael’s Medical Center located at 111 Central Avenue, Newark, NJ. Local residents can schedule an appointment with a certified application counselor, who will help them navigate the Healthcare Insurance Marketplace and register for an insurance plan.

Though uninsured individuals who qualify can sign up on the Health Insurance Marketplace via its website, www.healthcare.gov, Saint Michael’s certified counselors will be available to sit down with residents one-on-one to help answer questions, compare different options, and walk them through the process.

"As a healthcare provider for the greater Newark community, it is essential that we do all we can to help the members of our community gain access to quality, affordable health care," says David A. Ricci, president and CEO, Saint Michael’s Medical Center. "When people have access to better health coverage, they can feel more at ease in seeking the care they need to live more healthy and fulfilling lives."

For coverage starting in 2015, the Open Enrollment Period is November 15, 2014 thru February 15, 2015. Individuals interested in this community service can schedule an appointment with a Saint Michael’s counselor to help sign up for new health insurance by calling 973-465-2792.
