KLAWOCK – Open enrollment through the Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace began November 1, 2015, and continues through January 31, 2016. To help Prince of Wales community members navigate the process, SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Outreach and Enrollment Manager, Andrea Thomas will be at the Alicia Roberts Medical Center in Klawock November 30 through December 4. She is available to help people apply for insurance on the Health Insurance Marketplace, renew their Marketplace insurance, and apply for Medicaid.
