Cherry Health event before healthcare enrollment deadline

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – The deadline to sign-up for healthcare insurance for 2015 through the Affordable Care Act is on Sunday.

Cherry Health is holding a free event this weekend to help answer people’s questions and help them enroll by the Feb. 15 deadline.

The event is happening on Sunday from 1-5 p.m. at River City Scholars, located at 944 Evergreen Street SE in Grand Rapids.

It is open to the public and no appointment is needed, but those who plan to attend are recommended to come early.

“There are still a lot of misconceptions about how the tax credits work and what that does to the insurance you can purchase, so we do see a lot of people who are surprised by the results they get and what they can qualify for,” said Michelle Fitzgerald, an Affordable Care Act Outreach navigator. “Just because your neighbor got one result doesn’t mean that’s going to be your result, so find out for yourself what you can qualify for.”
