Do you have questions about the Affordable Care Act, familiarly known as Obamacare? Do you wonder if you are eligible for Medicaid or government subsidies for private insurance? Are you having problems logging into or navigating Washington state’s health exchange website? Help is available at the Mountlake Terrace Library.
WithinReach, a not-for-profit organization that helps individuals and families connect with health care options, programs and resources, will have representatives available at the library to answer questions and assist with completing enrollment applications on four Thursdays in November and December. The next information and assistance session is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 21, 2:30 – 5:30 p.m., with additional sessions Dec. 5, 12 and 19, 2:30-6 p.m.
