Hartford PPSNE to Help With ACA Enrollment

HARTFORD —  With about a week left in the Affordable Care Act open enrollment period, Planned Parenthood of Southern New England will be offering opportunities for city residents to get new health insurance before the March 31 deadline.

Planned Parenthood certified application specialists will be hosting Affordable Care Act Education & Enrollment Fairs to help residents get covered. Additionally, two dedicated Outreach and Enrollment Specialists are scheduling private appointments with Connecticut residents, so they may sign up for new health insurance.

“With the enrollment deadline less than two weeks away, Planned Parenthood is resolute in our efforts to help as many uninsured women and men obtain health insurance as possible,” said Judy Tabar President & CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southern New England. “Preventive services are expanded under Obamacare and women can no longer be discriminated against for having a preexisting condition. The new health care law ensures women can take charge of their health and well-being and PPSNE experts are here to make that process easier.”

Expanded preventive services include birth control, which is now treated like all other preventive care, meaning it is available without a co-pay. Ninety-nine percent of American women between the ages of 15 and 44 who are sexually active have used birth control at some point, and nearly 60 percent of women who take the birth control pill use it for medical reasons other than contraception, such as treatment for ovarian cysts, hormone replacement after chemotherapy, endometriosis and more. Birth control is just one example of the many benefits provided under the ACA.

Certified application counselors will help people sign up for new health insurance on the following dates and Planned Parenthood locations:
