SIHF Healthcare Open Enrollment Days
Through funding provided by the Public Library Association, Effingham Public Library is pleased to partner with the SIHF Healthcare to host Open Enrollment appointments for Effingham area residents on Wednesdays, Nov. 6, 13, 20, 2019, at the SIHF Heathcare Office 900 West Temple Building A Suite 208.
There’s a lot of confusion about the state of the Affordable Care Act, but comprehensive health coverage including key consumer protections like no discrimination against people with pre-existing health conditions is still available to consumers who need to get covered.  
Those who qualify for Marketplace usually qualify for financial assistance which lowers their overall insurance cost.  In fact, 85% of current Marketplace enrollees receive a tax credit to help lower their monthly premiums, and most pay less than $100/month for their plan.  
To make an appointment to speak with a Certified Insurance Counselors on Nov. 6, 13, or 20, call SIHF Healthcare’s Effingham office at 217.342.0211 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
