EAST ORANGE, NJ - East Orange General Hospital, in partnership with 13 other community groups,  hosted its second “Healthcare Marketplace Open Enrollment Day” on Saturday, March 22 at the East Orange Campus High School.

Representatives from three insurance providers – Horizon, Health Republic and AmeriHealth - were present to describe details about their low-cost plans offered through the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare.

Hundreds of uninsured and low-income residents of East Orange and surrounding areas attended. Last month, a similar event was successfully held at East Orange General with the goal of enrolling people in one of the health insurance plans if they chose. At both enrollment days, residents had the opportunity to speak with 32 Certified Application Counselors who helped applicants review, understand and compare all plan options and costs.“As a community healthcare provider our goal is to help our citizens obtain access to care,” said East Orange General Chief Financial Officer Al Aboud. “Bottom line is we want to make it as simple as possible for people to obtain insurance.”

In order to qualify for a low-cost plan offered by the three insurance providers, attendees were encouraged to bring the following: Social Security numbers, birth date, last three pay stubs or W2 forms, information about additional income, policy numbers for any current health insurance plans and information about any other health insurance an individual could get from an employer. People 65 years and older were reminded that they do not qualify, since they already are insured through Medicare.

Other community groups which helped promote the event included: Caribbean Medical Mission; The City of East Orange; FamiCare; Happy Hands Foundation; Jamaica Organization of New Jersey; Coalition of Caribbean American Commission; Elmwood United Presbyterian Church; Grenadian American Organization of NJ; Guyana American Heritage Foundation; Help Jamaica Medical Mission; Hispanics for Progress; Jamaica Nurses Association and the NAACP, Oranges and Maplewood.
