Get help with health care en­roll­ment

Since the de­vel­op­ment of the Af­ford­able Care Act, thou­sands of fam­i­lies have be­come el­i­gi­ble for health cov­er­age. How­ever, a blog from Com­mu­nity Cat­a­lyst pub­lished over­whelm­ing ev­i­dence that al­though the Af­ford­able Care Act ex­pands health care cov­er­age to thou­sands of fam­i­lies who have once been de­nied, over 700,000 fam­i­lies re­main unin­sured.

En­rolling into a health care plan is con­fus­ing and stress­ful for any­one, but es­pe­cially for fam­i­lies who have never nav­i­gated the sys­tem be­fore. That’s where SEEDCO be­comes in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant.

SEEDCO is a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion avail­able to as­sist fam­i­lies, who are el­i­gi­ble for cov­er­age but are unin­sured, in en­rolling into health care plans. SEEDCO cre­ates a user-friendly en­vi­ron­ment for fam­i­lies seek­ing health care en­roll­ment by pro­vid­ing cul­tur­ally sen­si­tive, in-per­son en­roll­ment ses­sions that are catered to each in­di­vid­ual fam­ily’s needs.

SEEDCO re­cently ex­panded to South­ern Mary­land, and I urge read­ers who feel they could ben­e­fit from such ser­vices to con­tact Mark Ro­manin­sky at MRo­manin­sky@seedco.org for more in­for­ma­tion.
