‘Pre-enrollment’ service through Oct. 31, 2020, helps consumers get prepared for health insurance Open Enrollment period
Community Health Programs has received a state grant to expand its insurance enrollment team to assist more area residents.
The two-year, $150,000 Massachusetts Health Insurance Navigator Grant grows the current enrollment staff from two to four positions.
The grant also supports free “pre-enrollment” information services at CHP through Oct. 31, ahead of the state’s open enrollment period, which runs Nov. 1-Jan. 23, 2021.
The pre-enrollment period helps consumers to obtain information, determine eligibility requirements and learn about the open enrollment process.
CHP’s insurance enrollment programs are open to all Massachusetts residents, not only to patients of CHP.
Insurance counseling takes place one-on-one by phone, online, or in person. Meanwhile, CHP staff will be attending outreach events at various locations, such as area food banks, churches and at CHP’s mobile health unit sites.
Funding for CHP’s expanded staffing comes from the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority, also known as the Health Connector program.
