THOMAS BRANIGAN Memorial Library joins libraries across the country this month to help the general public navigate new health insurance options under the Affordable Health Care Act, also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
BRANIGAN LIBRARY will begin by hosting two free workshops for the community. On Thursday, September 12 from 2pm until 4 pm there will be two speakers. AARP volunteer, Jerry Gunderson, will cover who needs to enroll in the ACA, instructions on the enrollment process, and when open enrollment starts. The second presenter, Stephanie Lazarin, from NM Aging & Long-Term Services Dep't., will focus on Medicare 2014. She'll also discuss qualifying for Medicaid Expansion, and how changes could affect participants. For those unable to attend, a repeat workshop will be held on Tuesday, September 24 from 2 pm to 4 pm.
