The open enrollment into health insurance plans for 2020 through the ACA Marketplace began on November 1 and closes on December 15.

During this time, PHC will host enrollment assistance events in Des Moines, Marshalltown and Ames to help people navigate the confusing process of enrolling in health insurance through the ACA Marketplace.

Who can get help?

All are welcome! You do not need to be a PHC patient to receive assistance enrolling in coverage through the Affordable Care Act Marketplace.

What to expect:

Our bilingual Health Benefits Specialists are Certified Application Counselors who will meet with community members to review their coverage options during a 45-60 minute session. 

They will go over the available plans and help you to decide which option is best for you based on your priorities.

While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage making an appointment ahead of time to make sure that we will be able to assist you with the enrollment process. 

What to Bring:

Bring a copy of your 2018 tax return, social security numbers for all of the people applying for coverage and the income information for all members of your household.
