It’s that time of year again. It’s time to start thinking about renewing your healthcare coverage through the Affordable Care Act. The deadline this year is December 15 for coverage starting January 1, and one local hospital will be hosting a certified application counselor for those looking to sign up or renew for 2018. HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital in Shelbyville will have the counselor on-site on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Glenda Plunkett is the Marketing Coordinator at HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital. She says those who schedule an appointment need to come prepared on Saturday.
Plunkett says having health insurance if you have a health emergency is a win-win situation for you and the hospital caring for you.
Plunkett says you must pre-register for an appointment with the application counselor and walk-ins will not be accepted. To schedule an appointment, call 774-3961 ext. 2460.
