Affordable Care Act help at Butterfield Library
At a free workshop this coming Saturday, Philipstown residents and others in the area who lack health care can learn about ways to obtain it through the federal and state governments’ Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) system.
The training/information program, on “The Affordable Care Act and You and the Community Health Advocate Program,” is scheduled to occur at the Butterfield Library, 10 Morris Ave., in Cold Spring, on Dec. 13, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Organizers request that attendees register in advance by calling MISN at 1-800-453-4666.
Program representatives recently addressed a Philipstown Town Board meeting, urging uninsured residents to take advantage of the no-cost advice at such information sessions and get health coverage.
The 2014–15 open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act began Nov. 15 and runs until Feb. 15. New York state provides the health care through its Marketplace Health Insurance initiative.
