SEAHEC and Regional Health Departments Offer Affordable Care Act Information Sessions

The South East Area Health Education Center (SEAHEC) and regional Health Departments are hosting free information sessions on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), often called “Obamacare.” The Affordable Care Act Information Sessions review the basics of getting insurance through the new Marketplace in an effort to help NC residents learn how they can enroll with health insurance. Information includes qualifying for Medicare, a subsidy, or how the new law will affect them.

ACA sessions are being held from December 2013 through March 2014 in New Hanover, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin and Pender counties. In conjunction, visitors to www.seahec.net can access an ACA webpage with resources including an instructional video.
