County Group Will Help Guide People Through Health Insurance Questions
By JON WILSON, Consulting Editor, TB Reporter
Called Pinellas County Navigators, the group will be at the St. Petersburg Main Library twice this month.
ST. PETERSBURG — A federally financed group called Navigators will be available twice this month at the Main Library to answer questions about the Affordable Health Care Act. The information and assistance sessions are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 9 and on Jan. 23. The library is at 3745 Ninth Ave. N.
Open enrollment for Affordable Health Care runs through Jan. 31. People who do not have health insurance, who are under-insured or who are not old enough for Medicare may be able to enroll in an insurance plan that will match their household budget and family needs. Residents may qualify for subsidies and/or tax credits to help pay for health insurance.
A $600,000 federal grant helped pay for the Navigators program.
Spanish-speaking navigators are available.
