Oct. 30, 2013 @ 06:00 AM

Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center, 207 Old Lexington Road, will host a drop-in educational session on the Health Insurance Marketplace (also known as the Health Insurance Exchange)  from 3 to 7 p.m. today (Oct. 30) at the hospital. This event will feature two formal presentations by expert speakers at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. Those who come also may sign up for plans.
Navigating  options for health insurance – including whether you qualify for a subsidy - can be confusing and overwhelming, said hospital officials. Trained staff will be onsite to address questions and sign up attendees for coverage through the Marketplace.
All plans are required to cover the following:
• Ddoctor visits, hospitalizations, maternity care, emergency room care and prescriptions.
• Not deny coverage for pre-existing conditions.
• Show the plan cost in simple language with no fine print.
• Offer individuals the opportunity for financial assistance to assist with the cost of coverage.
