Charleston Public Library to host Health Insurance Enrollment Fair

Charleston Public Library along with the Arkansas Department of Health will host an Enrollment Fair on Monday, February 24th to assist Charleston residents with enrollment in health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace. The event will be held from 12pm to 7pm at the Charleston Public Library on 12 South School Street in Charleston, Arkansas. The event is open to the public.

"As a Guide Organization for the Arkansas Health Connector, we are pleased to host an enrollment fair for affordable health insurance," Bobbie Biggs said. "This is an opportunity for residents to get information about the new health insurance law and get enrollment assistance."

Those attending the event can meet with trained, licensed guides to get enrollment assistance. Attendees can complete applications and get information about how much assistance they may qualify for to assist with insurance premiums.

To be eligible to enroll, a person must be between the ages of 18 and 64, live in the U.S., and must be a U.S. citizen or lawfully present. Anyone who plans to enroll should be prepared with:

Birthday and Social Security Numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants) for each member of household

Employer and income information for every member of the household (for example, pay stubs, W-2 forms, wage and tax statements)

"This event is a great opportunity for people to "Get In" and enroll in health insurance. I encourage anyone who doesn’t have health insurance to attend," said Bobbie Biggs.
