North Carolinians who need help enrolling in affordable health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act can call 1-855-733-3711, 1-800-672-5834 or 910- 817-7670 to schedule a free, in-person meeting with a trained navigator who can guide consumers through the enrollment process. Open enrollment began Nov. 15 and runs through Feb. 15, 2015.

aidNavigators from Legal Aid of North Carolina will be available to meet with consumers in Richmond County on Tuesdays at FirstHealth of the Carolinas Richmond Memorial Hospital in Rockingham. Appointments may be scheduled by calling 1-855-733-3711, 1-800-672-5834 or 910-817-7670.

Navigators are also available to meet with consumers at other times and locations throughout the state. Consumers should call 1-855-733-3711 to schedule an appointment with a navigator in their area.

Navigators are trained to help consumers understand how the Affordable Care Act will work for their families, apply for premium subsidies and coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace, and enroll in qualified health plans. Last year, 91 percent of North Carolinians who enrolled in health care coverage received financial assistance, with 48 percent of enrollees paying $50 or less for monthly premiums.

Consumers enrolling in health plans need to provide social security numbers and dates of birth for themselves and their family members, employer contact information (if applicable), policy numbers for current health insurance coverage (if applicable), and proof of household income.
