Due to an overwhelming response from local residents enrolling in health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, Erlanger Health System officials are providing a new free telephone hotline.
With two weeks until the March 31 deadline, representatives with Erlanger and American Exchange are encouraging area residents to call 1-888-995-1674. Representatives are available Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. to provide assistance in applying for or selecting the best health insurance plans.
For residents who are self pay or have individual coverage, they may find insurance under the Health Insurance Marketplace can be more affordable by enrolling under the Affordable Care Act. In fact, low-to-mid-income families can also qualify for tax credits to help cover the premiums. In the last two weeks, over 1,500 people have enrolled through this partnership.
