Get Assistance with Health Insurance Enrollment!

UCPL is offering access to free, trained assistance for health insurance enrollment through both Healthcare.gov and Medicare. See below for details on each.
 

Medicare Enrollment through CLAIM — CLAIM is the Missouri State Health Insurance Assistance Program. Trained counselors provide free, unbiased advocacy, education and assistance to people with Medicare and those who help them to make informed decisions about Medicare and related health insurance needs. This assistance will take place through the Medicare open enrollment period, which ends Dec. 7. Counseling can be obtained by calling CLAIM at 800-390-3330, or Margie at 314-250-3464.

Health Insurance through Healthcare.gov — Thanks to a grant from the Public Library Association, a certified assistant will offer free, one-on-one assistance with filling out the enrollment forms, by appointment only, through the Affordable Care Act open enrollment period, which ends on Dec. 15.
