Care Connection for Aging Services will help people of all ages enroll in the Health Insurance Marketplace through a special open enrollment period, which ends May 15.
The COVID-19 Pandemic prompted an extended 2021 enrollment period.
The agency has several licensed “navigators” who can provide one-on-one assistance to people who need help to register on the online Marketplace; compare health plans that are available in Missouri; price coverage; determine whether they would qualify for income tax credits based upon their incomes; and understand benefits.
Care Connection provides impartial information and services without charge to consumers. The agency does not endorse or sell any particular policies or companies.
The service will be provided by telephone appointment in all 13 West Central Missouri counties where Care Connection serves in 23 locations. Care Connection is a non-profit area agency on aging that services Bates, Benton, Carroll, Cedar, Chariton, Henry, Hickory, Johnson, Lafayette, Pettis, Saline, St. Clair, and Vernon counties. Call 1-800-748-7826 to make an appointment for Marketplace enrollment.
