Healthcare Coverage – Fall is the Time to Check

Fort Wayne, IN – Fall is open enrollment time for employer coverage and the federal Marketplace. This year the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) will also have a time during which enrollees can change their plans. “Just like the oil in your car, it is important to check your healthcare coverage status and make sure you are ready for the road and any healthcare needs” states Amanda Chappell, program manager of Covering Kids & Families of Brightpoint which is part of a state-wide network that helps Hoosiers understand and sign up for Indiana and federal healthcare coverage programs. “Healthcare coverage – insurance- can be confusing for consumers. We want Hoosiers to know help is available.”
