November 17, 2014
BRADENTON, Florida (November 17, 2014) – As open enrollment for2015 health plans sold through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insurance marketplaces began starting Saturday, Nov. 15, AttainHealth, LLC (AttainHealth) an insurance, navigation and wellness company, announced its new series of free health insurance informational seminars for women. The seminars are geared towards helping women understand health insurance; learn about new and existing options available to them and their families on the marketplace; determine if they qualify for financial assistance; and demonstrations on how to shop and compare plans during open enrollment which goes from November 15, 204 through February 15, 2015.
An informational session sponsored by AttainHealth will be offered at the Women’s Resource Center Manatee on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 3pm to 4:30pm.
“Women use more health care services (57%) primarily due to reproductive needs, are the primary decision makers regarding health care for themselves and their families (80%), and the ones most likely to access or provide care when a family member falls ill according to the Department of Labor (Dec. 2013).” said Victoria Kasdan, RN, MPH, president of AttainHealth. “Unfortunately a recent survey conducted by The Kaiser Family Foundation showed that nearly nine out often uninsured people (89%) are unaware that the Affordable Care Act’s second open enrollment period starts November 15th. That’s why we think its important now, to inform women about affordable coverage options to access quality healthcare in our community.”
The Women’s Resource Center of Manatee is thrilled to partner with AttainHealth in offering free informational seminars on health insurance and the upcoming ACA open enrollment.
