Christal Martin speaks about Affordable Care Act at seminar

The Affordable Care Act is now in full swing and many Nolan County residents are still puzzled as to what this means to them and their families. Christal Martin with the West Central Texas Council of Governments was the guest speaker at the monthly Lunch and Learn Seminar hosted by Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital. Open enrollment to buy health insurance ends on March 31, 2014. To buy insurance outside the open enrollment date, individuals must qualify for a special enrollment period due to a life event such as changes in employment, marriage, divorce and child births, among others. A support team was in place following the seminar until to help individuals with specific questions or to register for an insurance plan.
