Free Workshops on Affordable Healthcare Act

Posted: Updated:

Free workshops that explain the Affordable Healthcare Act are being held at various Birmingham Public Library locations. Trained officials with Birmingham HealthCare, a nonprofit health organization, will lead the sessions and be available to assist with enrollment. Coverage providers in Alabama are Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and Humana Insurance. Those eligible to enroll may do so, for free, during the sessions.

Open enrollment will end March 31. Those without health insurance may incur a tax penalty when filing taxes in 2015, which is why officials encourage the public to attend the sessions to learn more about the law.

The sessions will be held on:

Monday, March 17, 10 a.m., North Birmingham Library, 2501 31St Ave. North

Wednesday, March 19, 9 a.m., Pratt City Library, 509 Dugan Ave.

For more information about the new law, please visit www.healthcare.gov or call 205-439-7217 to speak with an outreach specialist.
