Cover Oregon Info Session October 22
There has been a whole lot of discussion about the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Oregon is one of sixteen states running its own healthcare exchange, called Cover Oregon. While you may have seen the commercials or the brightly colored billboards advertising Cover Oregon, you might be unsure as to how it can affect you. How much will it cost to be insured? Are you eligible for Medicaid or a healthcare subsidy? What will you be charged if you do not buy health insurance?
Newport Library is pleased to help you find answers to your questions. On Tuesday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. Lauren Bailey from Lincoln County Health and Human Services and a Certified Enrollment Assister will be at the library to present information on Cover Oregon and answer your specific questions. There will be no actual enrollment assistance, but Lauren will provide information on how to seek help from Certified Enrollment Assisters like herself in the community. Come join us in the downstairs meeting room as we learn more about Cover Oregon.
