October 15, 2013FULTON COUNTY, Ga. – The Fulton County Cooperative Extension will offer Affordable Care Act information sessions to assist residents, small businesses and their employees through the new health care marketplace.
Interested parties are encouraged to register for a free information session that will be led by a University of Georgia health navigator assigned to Fulton County to assist with helping individuals and small businesses complete eligibility and enrollment forms. Residents should call 404-332-2400 to register for a session.
Health navigators, under UGA Cooperative Extension, are able to help residents decide on the best health insurance to meet their needs and will help them apply — either electronically or by paper — to establish eligibility, enroll in coverage and potentially qualify for an insurance affordability program.
"Cooperative Extension provides unbiased information to help residents learn ways to improve their lives," said Menia Chester, director for Fulton County Cooperative Extension. "The health care marketplace is just one of the many venues in which we can offer our expertise to help residents through the enrollment process."
The health navigator program is being overseen by faculty in the the college and UGA Extension and supported by eight faculty members in the college's various departments.
