MHP assisting with Marketplace

OSKALOOSA — Mahaska Health Partnership has staff members readily available to answer questions and assist individuals in registering for insurance on the Health Insurance Marketplace.

According to Joyce Vonk, director of Patient Accounts at MHP, getting health insurance before March 31, 2014, is necessary to avoid tax penalties.

“We have a number of staff members trained to assist anyone with health insurance questions. Whether you are completely new to the process, or get halfway through and need additional help, we are happy to provide guidance," she said.

MHP will be hosting an educational event for the public Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Cedar Bluff Learning Center (entrance #3) for anyone who has questions about their health insurance. There will be a 30-minute presentation by the Certified Application Counselors with time for questions and scheduling appointments afterwards.

“The new healthcare rules are very confusing for everyone,” Vonk assured. “Our certified staff has received in-depth training about the new health insurance laws so we can help. As the leading healthcare organization in Oskaloosa, we feel it’s vital to provide our community with the tools necessary to get affordable health insurance.

“To have your coverage begin Jan. 1, 2014, you must be enrolled by Dec. 23, 2013. You can still enroll in 2014, however, coverage will not begin until the start of the following month. In order to avoid government penalties, you must be enrolled by March 31, 2014.”

MHP certified application counselors are available to answer questions and help people search for plans that best fit their needs. Meeting with a counselor will take approximately one hour, but each situation is different. To schedule an appointment, call 641-672.3362 or email insurancehelp@mahaskahealth.org.
