Hialeah, Fla. (November 10, 2016) – With the health insurance marketplace open enrollment now up and running through Jan. 31, Palmetto General Hospital’s community education and outreach program aims to raise awareness and understanding of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), as well as the insurance options available for those currently without insurance or looking to change plans.

As part of the enrollment effort, Palmetto General Hospital will provide resources to assist residents in the community with enrollment in an Insurance Marketplace plan that is right for each person or family. Trained enrollment counselors are available at Palmetto General Hospital Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-10 p.m. in the emergency room lobby. You can walk in or schedule an appointment for your convenience by calling 1-866-893-8446.
