Financial Help Available for Eligible Applicants
Neptune, New Jersey, November 30, 2020 – Open enrollment for Affordable Healthcare Insurance starting in 2021 is from November 1, 2020 until January 31, 2021 through the state’s official health insurance marketplace at GetCovered.nj.gov. Fulfill, formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, is a State Navigator Agency, offering free assistance with our trained healthcare experts. This service allows individual needs to be addressed and connects eligible people to financial assistance for premiums.
“Affordable Healthcare Insurance is another service that Fulfill offers. This service is unique compared to that of traditional foodbanks. Most insecure families have to make difficult choices between paying for food and paying for medical care and unpaid medical bills,” said Fulfill CEO and President Kim Guadagno. “Especially now during the Covid-19 crisis, enrolling in Affordable Healthcare Insurance and working with our trained healthcare experts, families can reduce their risk of having to pay these large bills out of pocket.”
It’s important to remember, while open enrollment for the Marketplace ends January 31, 2021 the enrollment period for those eligible for NJ FamilyCare is year-round. Please call 732-643-5888 or email Health@fulfillnj.org for remote assistance or to schedule in person assistance this open enrollment season.
