Health Insurance Navigators at 5 Fulton Health Centers to Guide Residents with ACA Sign-up. Enrollment Deadline: January 31 | Print |

The deadline to sign up for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for 2017 is January 31.   The Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness is urging uninsured residents to meet with any of the health insurance navigators at one of its five health centers and sign-up.    Applicants should bring identification and proof of income and insurance, if they have any.   It may take up to 60 – 90 minutes for navigators to search through the several insurance plans offered by the eight major health insurance providers in Georgia.   These certified health insurance navigators can help residents to compare plans and apply for financial assistance.   To start your application, log on to www.healthcare.gov.

Walk-in appointments will be available at the Adamsville Regional Health Center, Center for Health & Rehabilitation, College Park Regional Health Center, Neighborhood Union Health Center and the North Fulton Service Center during specified dates and times.  To qualify for insurance under the Affordable Care Act, you must be a resident of Georgia and a U.S. citizen or a U.S. naturalized citizen.   This free help is made possible due to a partnership between the Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness, the Morehouse School of Medicine and Insure Georgia.   Since open enrollment began in November, hundreds of residents have been assisted by the Fulton County navigators.
