MONROEVILLE – Oct. 21, 2014 – To help families obtain health care insurance through the federal Affordable Care Act, state Sen. Jim Brewster and the Consumer Health Care Coalition will hold an information session for the public at 5 p.m., Nov. 5, at Penn State-Greater Allegheny.

“ACA is making a significant difference in the lives of people who have lived without insurance and the peace of mind many Pennsylvanians enjoy,” Sen. Brewster said. “I am looking forward to presenting this important evening of information with the coalition to ensure that residents of the 45th Senatorial District are able to meet the new deadlines and obtain coverage.”

The Consumer Health Coalition received a federal grant to help families get insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

The training will, among other things, discuss open enrollment, how to enroll and where consumers can go for assistance. An overview of the new Healthy PA program will also be shared. Healthy PA reforms Pennsylvania’s Medical Assistance program so that coverage will be extended to more than 600,000 eligible residents.

To reserve a seat at the session, residents should RSVP to Kathy Jo Osman at 412-664-5200 or kosman@pasenate.com.
