OCL partners to assist people with ACA enrollment applications

TOMS RIVER –  Ocean County Library will continue to work with Ocean Health Initiatives and the Family Resource Network for the Affordable Care Act enrollments by offering no-cost information sessions until February 15, 2015.

Select library branch meeting rooms will be used to discuss health care options. OHI and FRN will schedule appointments and also take walk-in as time permits for the enrollment sessions. To make an appointment, telephone 1-800-355-0271.

The sessions will allow you to compare plans and apply for coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace online.

The Navigators who lead the sessions can also help people with exemptions to the marketplace, appeals and NJ Family Care Applications (Medicaid.)

Spanish language fliers are on the library website, www.theoceancountylibrary.org .   Call in advance to ensure a Spanish speaking navigator is available for your appointment.

People should bring the following items with them to the session:

  • Social Security number
  • Document number if you are an eligible immigrant who wants health coverage
  • Birth date
  • Pay stubs
  • W-2 forms of other information about your income
  • Employer’s telephone number
