Harrisburg – October 25, 2017 – State Sen. Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny/Westmoreland), in partnership with Human Services Center Corporation (HSCC) in Turtle Creek and the YWCA Greater Pittsburgh, will be hosting a health coverage and Low-Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP) enrollment event on Thursday, Nov. 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the offices of HSCC, 519 Penn Ave., Turtle Creek. 

“Given all the recent upheaval regarding the Affordable Care Act, questions have arisen about health care coverage, who is eligible and how individuals that need access to care can sign up,” Brewster said.  “These are critical questions that deserve accurate answers.”

Brewster’s staff and officials from HSCC and the YWCA Greater Pittsburgh will be on hand to answer questions and enroll those who are interested in health insurance through Health Insurance Marketplace.  Those who participate also will be able to enroll in Medicaid and complete applications for heating assistance through LIHEAP. 

“Accessing health care through the marketplace can help families manage health care costs and receive life-saving care,” Brewster said.  “The professionals on hand will be able to answer questions and help enroll citizens in Medicaid and the health marketplace and assist in completing LIHEAP applications.

“I cannot emphasize how important it is for those who want to access health care to come to the enrollment event and learn what is available.”

Brewster said appointments can be made by calling HSCC at  412-829-7112 or book online.  Those planning to enroll should bring name, date of birth, Social Security number(s), recent pay stubs for all household members and a recent heating bill if there is interest in applying for LIHEAP.
