The Arkansas Department of Health will host an Education and Enrollment Fair on Tuesday, February 18 to assist Poinsett County residents with enrollment in health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the 18th at the Marked Tree campus of ASU-Newport in Building A on US 63 in Marked Tree. “We are pleased to host an education and enrollment fair for affordable health insurance,” Jodie Hightower, Public Information Specialist for the Northeast Arkansas region said. “This is an opportunity for residents to learn about the new health insurance law and get enrollment assistance.” The public is invited to attend to learn more about the health insurance options available through the new Health Insurance Marketplace, get information about the financial assistance now available to help pay insurance premiums and meet with trained, licensed guides for enrollment assistance. To be eligible to enroll, a person must be between the ages of 18 and 64, live in the U.S., and must be a U.S. citizen or lawfully present. Anyone who plans to enroll should be prepared with: • Birthdate and Social Security Numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants) for each member of household • Employer and income information for every member of the household (for example, pay stubs, W-2 forms, wage and tax statements) “This event is a great opportunity for people to “Get In” and enroll in health insurance. I encourage anyone who doesn’t have health insurance to attend this event,” said Hightower.
