Bewildered by health insurance?

If you need help navigating through the sea of insurance options available in the state of Washington, help is on the way.

Unity Care NW, the Whatcom Alliance for Health Advancement and the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner will hold a health insurance enrollment fair on Friday, November 4 at the Gulf Road community center.

Volunteers will be available to help participants use the Washington Healthplanfinder, an online marketplace that helps individuals, families and small businesses find, compare and enroll in a plan that fits their needs and budget. Volunteers also help people determine if they qualify for Washington Apple Health, free insurance for those who qualify.

Statewide Health Insurance Benefit volunteers will also be available to help seniors understand Medicare coverage and compare health and prescription plans.

To reserve a spot call 360/788-6594 or drop in at the community center on November 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Bring current health insurance cards, your prescription list, income information, any coverage letters, your most recent tax return and immigration documents.
