Only 55Days Left to Enroll in the Insurance Marketplace:
 Enrollment Assistance Available

[PHILADELPHIA, February 4th, 2014] – With only 55 days left for individuals to enroll in an insurance plan in the healthcare marketplace for coverage starting in 2014, Hahnemann University Hospital is ramping up efforts to educate the uninsured on steps they can take to secure affordable healthcare coverage.

As part of the “Path to Health” campaign, a community education and outreach initiative to raise awareness and understanding of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and provide trusted resources to assist in enrolling, Hahnemann is providing trained enrollment counselors to the public. These counselors are available by phone Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm to answer questions and assist with the enrollment process.

“The Path to Health initiative provides an excellent opportunity for members of our community to get answers to the questions they have about health insurance basics, the enrollment process and the health care law,” said Michael P. Halter, chief executive officer.  “We have always been committed to delivering safe, quality care in the communities we serve.  As caregivers, ensuring that our community and our patients understand all of the coverage options available to them is an extension of that mission.”

Through its social media channels, bilingual website and enrollment events, the “Path to Health” campaign works with community partners to offer educational materials and resources about the insurance exchanges and the ACA to help simplify the law and educate members of the community about their insurance options so that they can choose the best coverage for themselves and their families.
