DETROIT (WWJ) – Several community groups are holding an enrollment fair to get people signed up for health coverage under Obamacare.
It’s help understanding the Affordable Care Act, along with free health screenings all day long at Fellowship Chapel in Northwest Detroit.
The NAACP, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the Detroit Medical Center among the groups hosting the event.
City of Detroit retiree Sheila Johnson said she wants to make sure she picks the right plan given the status of retiree benefits in the city.
“I fall into that area that, I’m not Medicare eligible and I’m facing maybe salary reductions, or retiree reductions.” Johnson said. “So, I’m kind of worried. Just trying to see if I made the right choice.”
The enrollment fair runs Tuesday, Feb. 18, through 3 p.m. at Fellowship Chapel on Outer Drive in Detroit.
During the fair there will be an opportunity to speak to enrollment specialists, ask questions regarding current health care issues. Health care consultants will be available to sign up individuals for the Affordable Health Care program. Additionally there will be a health fair providing free health screenings, a panel discussion and workshops to provide the community with information on the ACA, Medicaid expansion in Michigan and a financial literacy workshop to answer questions on the tax implications of the ACA.
This event is free and open to the public. Those who plan to attend should call 313- 664-2422 to RSVP.
