With One Week Left to Enroll In Health Insurance, Brown Alerts Ohioans to Free Help Signing Up

Brown Joins Healthcare Assister at Cleveland Site Where Ohioans Can Get Free Help Enrolling, Updating Health Coverage

With One Week Left to Enroll In Health Insurance, Brown Alerts Ohioans to Free Help Signing Up

CLEVELAND, OH —Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) visited Circle Health Services, a health insurance enrollment site in Cleveland, to alert Ohioans about ways they can enroll in a new healthcare plan or update their current coverage. The deadline for Ohioans to sign up for coverage or change their plan is Friday, December 15th.

Ohioans can enroll or change their healthcare plan in a variety of ways:

  • By Phone: Call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596 with questions or to enroll over the phone.
  • In-Person: Visit LocalHelp.HealthCare.gov or call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596 to obtain a list of assisters in northeast Ohio who are trained and certified to help individuals enroll in person.

“Of course we still have a lot to do to improve our healthcare system, and I’m ready to work with folks on both sides of the aisle to lower premiums and prescription drug costs,” said Brown. “But free assistance sites like this one can help many Ohioans find cheaper coverage, right now, during open enrollment.”

Since 2013, more than 900,000 Ohioans have obtained insurance coverage through the health law — many for the first time. Last year, many Ohioans who shopped around for coverage were able to find cheaper coverage. 

Brown was joined at Circle Health Services by Rachel Rosen DeGolia, who helps northeast Ohioans enroll in healthcare coverage.

“It’s important that people know that the ACA – the Affordable Care Act – is still in force and helping millions of people,” said Ms. DeGolia.
