Libraries aid Covered California enrollment

Submitted By Thomas Li

Covered California has teamed with Libraries throughout Alameda County and other libraries across the state to assist local consumers who want to obtain quality, affordable health insurance before the March 31 enrollment deadline. The assistance is free and confidential.
ÒWe know this is a major decision for consumers that many are still trying to make. We expect thousands of enrollees during the next few days to finish their shopping and comparisons and then decide,Ó Covered California Executive Director Peter V. Lee said. ÒWe have also found that libraries throughout the state have been among the best places where consumers feel they will get trusted information and assistance to help them enroll in Covered California health insurance plans.Ó
Guided and trained by Covered California, more than 27,000 Certified Enrollment Counselors, Certified Insurance Agents and county eligibility workers across the state are available to help consumers enroll. Some of these trusted partners will be at Libraries throughout Alameda County to provide free enrollment assistance to consumers.
