Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Issaquah residents who don’t have health insurance can now enroll in affordable health insurance options online at www.wahealthplanfinder.org.
Still, enrolling might seem daunting for anyone who doesn’t have good Internet access, or who doesn’t feel comfortable signing up using a website.
That’s why the city of Issaquah and Public Health – Seattle & King County have teamed up for an in-person enrollment event from noon to 6 p.m. Oct. 28 in the Eagle Room at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.
King County Public Health’s Washington Healthplanfinder is a part of the county’s effort to ensure all residents who are newly eligible for health coverage are enrolled.
All health plans offered through Washington Healthplanfinder include basic benefits like doctor visits, emergency care, prescriptions, maternity care and preventive care.
Free or low-cost coverage is available. Enrollment began Oct. 1 for coverage that begins Jan. 1, 2014.
