The fair will offer information and resources for health insurance options when the Affordable Care Act begins Jan. 1.
The Health Access Fair will have speakers presenting on the Washington Health Benefits Exchange and the importance of preventive health.
There will be a variety of professionals available throughout the day who can discuss insurance options with the attendees.
Most insurance plans will include a basic set of required preventive services such as doctor appointments, emergency medical care, laboratory services and wellness checkups.
“We want to help our friends and neighbors find the best health insurance options for them in an atmosphere that’s both fun and informative,” said Erin Brown, Jefferson Healthcare’s financial counseling supervisor.
Starting Oct. 1, the state will have a new online marketplace for individuals and families to compare and enroll in health insurance plans, access savings on their insurance premiums or determine their eligibility for Medicaid through www.wahealthplanfinder.org.
