Smart Choice: Health Insurance

11/07/2015 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Ames Public Library, 515 Douglas Avenue in Ames
515-239-5646

The Health Insurance Marketplace opens on November 1, so it is time for consumers to choose their health insurance for 2016.  Selecting a policy involves more than just looking at the monthly premium cost.

Consumers need to understand out-of-pocket costs and consider their health care needs.

On Saturday, November 7, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will offer a FREE workshop in partnership with the Ames Library; Smart Choice:  Health Insurance is designed to help you understand your options and make the best decisions for your situation.  The workshop will be held from 10 am to noon at the Ames Public Library.

The workshop will be led by Barb Wollan, Extension Human Sciences Specialist in Family Finance, and will be non-commercial and non-political.  It will include a review of key insurance terms and concepts and an examination of bronze, silver, gold and platinum plans.  Participants will build information and skills for choosing a health insurance policy that fits their needs.  The workshop will also describe how cost assistance works using Premium Tax Credits, who might be eligible for free insurance, and where to get help with enrolling. 

Pre-registration is requested - contact the library at (515) 239-5646 or www.amespubliclibrary.org.
