Health Care Navigation - The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)

One of the vital aspects of a healthy community is healthy citizens, and health insurance is an important part of working towards personal health.

Since 2013, the Community Development Council has partnered with Seedco to provide education, outreach and enrollment assistance on the Affordable Care Act. This extensive educational and assistance program has been developed and executed by CD Council’s in-house Federally Certified Health Care Navigator.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law in 2010 and is the the largest and most successful reform to the United States’ health care system since Medicare in 1965. While it can be daunting and confusing to many U.S. residents, CD Council’s Health Care Navigator is there to help them determine if they qualify and, if so, get them signed up. 

Services offered include: 

  • Free step-by-step assistance with the application process for the Federally Facilitated Marketplace
  • Unbiased explanations of every aspect of the private insurance plans available for purchase through the Marketplace
  • Education on the basics of insurance policies and how they work
  • Educational seminars on the Marketplace basics and Insurance 101 for any interested organization, business or group of people

We are also happy to bring our information to Health Fairs and other community outreach programs.

Open Enrollment for 2015 Health Insurance Plans begins November 15th, 2014 and remains open through February 15th, 2015. Please contact us if you are interested in getting one-on-one assistance or if you have a group in need of outreach and education.
