TCMC to Host Insurance Sign Up Event

Area health professions students offer assistance with health insurance sign-ups at TCMC
Students from The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC), Wilkes University, and The University of Scranton along with the Advocacy Alliance will offer an outreach session to assist community members with learning about and signing up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) on March 22th, 2014, from 10:00am to 2:00pm at TCMC’s Medical Sciences Building in Scranton.
 
After March 31st, the next Open Enrollment period for Marketplace HealthCare is November 15, 2014 through January 15, 2015.  If you do not have HealthCare after March 31st, you may be assessed a penalty of $95, or 1% of your income, whichever is higher, for the 2014 tax year.
 
Attendees should bring their Social Security numbers or document information for immigrants with satisfactory status; employer and income information for everyone in the family; and federal tax information.  Attendees may wish to determine their eligibility for tax credits towards HealthCare Plan premiums in the Marketplace and sign up for an insurance plan that day, or just gather information. 
 
TCMC is located at 525 Pine Street, Scranton, PA 18509. Community members may park on the street or in TCMC’s parking lot at the corner of Gibson St. and Washington St. Walk-in’s are welcome.
