The Sentinel-Record - - FRONT PAGE -

The Arkansas Health In­sur­ance Mar­ket­place will host an event at First Net­work In­sur­ance, 1018 Air­port Road, Suite

126, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Satur­day, and else­where around the state, to pro­vide one-on-one as­sis­tance to con­sumers who wish to en­roll in the state’s My Arkansas In­sur­ance In­di­vid­ual Mar­ket­place.

The open en­roll­ment dead­line is Dec. 15.

Agents and bro­kers will be on hand at lo­ca­tions through­out the state to as­sist con­sumers and an­swer ques­tions. They can also help peo­ple en­roll in the Mar­ket­place for re­ceiv­ing health in­sur­ance cov­er­age, AHIM said in a news re­lease.

Con­sumers must have the fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion to en­roll:

• In­for­ma­tion on how taxes are filed (sin­gle, mar­ried or head of house­hold).

• Ex­pected house­hold in­come for the fol­low­ing year.

• In­for­ma­tion for all per­sons who will be in­sured in­clud­ing ad­dress, So­cial Se­cu­rity num­bers, and work and in­come in­for­ma­tion.

• Cur­rent health in­sur­ance in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing car­rier and pol­icy num­ber.

• Le­gal im­mi­grants must have doc­u­men­ta­tion.

The pro­gram pro­vides health in­sur­ance plans for in­di­vid­u­als who do not have ac­cess to em­ployer-pro­vided in­sur­ance and will use the fed­eral en­roll­ment plat­form on Health­care.gov.

Each avail­able plan pro­vides com­pre­hen­sive ben­e­fits with no re­stric­tions for pre-ex­ist­ing con­di­tions and no life­time lim­its. Also in­cluded are stan­dard health care ben­e­fits such as in­pa­tient care, out­pa­tient ser­vices, pre­scrip­tion drugs and pre­ven­tive care and screenings.

As­sis­tance is also avail­able through the AHIM HelpLine at 844-355-3262.

AHIM was cre­ated to man­age and im­ple­ment a state-based health in­sur­ance ex­change in Arkansas in ac­cor­dance with state and fed­eral law. AHIM was es­tab­lished by the Leg­is­la­ture in 2013 and is a non­profit pub­lic ben­e­fit cor­po­ra­tion. My Arkansas In­sur­ance is the state-based ex­change es­tab­lished and man­aged by AHIM.

AHIM is gov­erned by the Arkansas Health In­sur­ance Mar­ket­place’s board of di­rec­tors. The AHIM Board re­ports to the Arkansas Health In­sur­ance Mar­ket­place Leg­isla­tive Over­sight Com­mit­tee.
