Financial Help Available for Eligible Applicants
Open enrollment for Affordable Healthcare Insurance starting in 2020 through Marketplace is underway and will continue through December 15, 2019. 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 to help with their insurance premiums.
“We know from the last Hunger Study that 4 out of 5 food insecure families have to make difficult choices between paying for food and paying for medical care. We also know that about half of people who are food insecure also have significant unpaid medical bills. By enrolling in Affordable Healthcare Insurance, families can reduce their risk of having to pay these large bills out of pocket,” said Fulfill CEO and President Kim Guadagno, the former Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey. “It’s why we’re called Fulfill, because we are more than a food bank. We provide a variety of additional services.”
Please visit our website at fulfillnj.org for a complete list of all Assistance Sites this open enrollment season. If you live in Monmouth or Ocean Counties and need help navigating open enrollment, email us at email@example.com or call us at 732-643-5888.
It’s important to remember, while open enrollment for the Marketplace ends December 15, the enrollment period for those eligible for NJ FamilyCare is year-round.
