Westside Family Health Center Offers Advice To Navigate Health Insurance Changes:

Affordable, quality health insurance coverage becomes available on Jan. 1, 2014 through the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

If you have not enrolled for coverage through Covered California, California’s online health insurance marketplace, Westside Family Health Center (WFHC) is here to help you become insured. All must enroll and be covered by health insurance in 2014 or face a tax penalty.

In order to avoid the penalty for not having health insurance in 2014, one must enroll before Feb. 15, 2014. In order to have coverage start Jan. 1, 2014, community members must enroll by Dec. 23, 2013. All must have health insurance unless you are excluded from the law due to documentation status or a special exemption.

“With nine Certified Enrollment Counselors, and more becoming certified soon, Westside Family Health Center is excited to be a part of this incredible, historic effort,’’ said Debra A. Farmer, WFHC’s President/Chief Executive Officer. “Our Certified Enrollment Counselors can help you figure out which type of insurance coverage you qualify for and will explain the basics of health insurance and consumer rights and responsibilities under ACA. Our health center enrollment staff is not only highly trained, but they represent the community. We understand you, and treat you with respect.’’

WFHC is a Certified Enrollment Entity for Covered California health insurance plans. WFHC Enrollment Counselors provide free enrollment assistance to consumers shopping for health coverage using the online application at www.CoveredCa.com.

To make an appointment for enrollment help or for more information, contact Ben Tolksdorf at [email protected] or call 310.450.2191, ext. 206.
