Senator Casey Invites Community Health Net To ACA Forum. The forum discussed the Open Enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act.  

Erie, Pa. – December 08, 2020 – Community Health Net, the leading Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) serving the Lake Erie region, announced its participation in a forum presented by U.S. Senator Bob Casey on Tuesday, December 08, at 10 am. The panel addressed the Open Enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act, and publicity regarding Pennie, the new health insurance marketplace for Pennsylvanians.

“Health insurance coverage is vital to the well-being of families and individuals in the Lake Erie Region,” said Craig Ulmer, CEO of Community Health Net. The open enrollment period started on November 01, 2020, and closes on December 15, 2020, for those that require coverage as of January 1, 2021. “It is a particularly appropriate time to have a discussion on the health insurance marketplace for members of our community.”

U.S. Senator Casey, Jessica Altman, Insurance Commissioner for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Anthony Ignocheck, M.D., Acting Medical Director, and Maria Calderon, Marketplace Navigator at Community Health Net, were in attendance with others.

Erie County Public Library partners with Community Health Net to offer Open Enrollment Coverage

Erie, PA –The Erie County Public Library partners with Community Health Net to offer information on open enrollment insurance coverage options.

The collaboration will offer a Zoom presentation on insurance coverage options with Q&A sessions on Tuesday, Dec. 15, at 10 a.m. Registration is free and required to participate; register at events.erielibrary.org. An enrollment specialist will schedule one-on-one appointments following the presentations for those attendees in need of further information or assistance accessing the enrollment marketplace.

Health insurance coverage is vital to the well-being of families and individuals. In 2019, over 29 million Americans were living without health insurance. Uninsured nonelderly adults were over twice as likely as those with private coverage to have had problems paying medical bills in the past 12 months. Uninsured residents may face unaffordable medical bills when they do seek care.

The programming was made possible by the “Libraries connecting you to coverage” grant from the American Library Association.

Erie, PA –The Erie County Public Library partners with Community Health Net to offer information on open enrollment insurance coverage options.

The collaboration will offer two Zoom presentations on insurance coverage options with Q&A sessions on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 6 p.m. and Tuesday, Dec. 15, at 10 a.m. Registration is free and required to participate; register at events.erielibrary.org.

“We are well aware that a single organization cannot provide the resources necessary to assist with the health needs of the region. We must work unitedly,” said Craig Ulmer, CEO of Community Health Net. One of Community Health Net’s strategic goals is to generate and promote meaningful preemptive care through collaborations. The organization believes that quality preemptive care is predicated upon a person’s ability to secure affordable health insurance.  “By partnering with vested partners, such as the Erie County Public Library, we have a better opportunity to help our community to address their health insurance needs,” said Ulmer.
