Free Information Program on the Health Insurance Marketplace

Many people turn to the Dayton Metro Library for answers to their health questions and for information about resources for their health needs. As the Affordable Care Act is implemented and the new Health Insurance Marketplace opens on October 1, many more people will turn to the library for help.

To help meet this need for information, the library will present Understanding and Using the New Health Insurance Marketplace, a free informational program offered at two library locations on Thursday, October 3. The program will take place at the Main Library, 215 E. Third Street, from 3:00-4:30 p.m. and again that evening at the Trotwood Branch Library, 651 E Main St. from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Both are free and open to the public.

Kathleen Gmeiner, Project Director for Ohio Consumers for Health Coverage, will discuss how the Marketplace works, options for purchasing health insurance from a variety of private health insurance plans, the availability of financial assistance to lower costs, and how to enroll in the Marketplace. Ms. Gmeiner has worked in the field of health care advocacy, planning and policy analysis for 25 years. She has a Master's degree in Health Services Administration from the University of Michigan School of Public Health and a law degree from the University of Cincinnati.

Following the afternoon program at the Main Library, Stacia Dawson, a Certified Application Counselor from the Community Health Centers of Greater Dayton, will be available to help those interested in enrolling in the Health Insurance Marketplace. She'll offer enrollment assistance from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Main Library Computer Lab. People who wish to enroll should bring Social Security numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants); birth dates; pay stubs, W-2 forms or "Wage and Tax Statements"; policy numbers for any current health insurance; and information about any health insurance they or their family could get from their jobs.

Call the library at 463-2665 if you need more information.
