“If you are in need of health insurance: attend this event,” said Tulsa Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart. “There are less than two weeks until the enrollment period closes, and still thousands of uninsured Tulsans who can benefit from having health insurance. Share this opportunity with your friends and family who need to explore their insurance options. Health insurance means access to preventive care, a primary care physician, peace of mind, and much more.”
Attendees are encouraged to bring several important documents to the event: social security numbers and/or immigration status numbers for all family members; employer and/or other income information; policy numbers for any current health insurance; and information about any job related health insurance currently available.
Attendees who do not have an email address will be able to create one at the event. An email address is needed to enroll in health insurance.
The Health Insurance Marketplace can be found at www.Healthcare.Gov. The Marketplace provides health insurance plans with savings based on your income levels. Claim Your Coverage event attendees will get assistance on which is the right plan, and ensure the best plan and the best price is selected.
