Free Workshops on the Affordable Healthcare Act to be Held at Birmingham Public Libraries in March
Free workshops that explain the Affordable Healthcare Act will be held at various Birmingham Public Library locations in March. Trained officials with Birmingham HealthCare, a nonprofit health organization, will lead the sessions and be available to assist with enrollment. Those eligible to enroll may do so, for free, during the sessions. Coverage providers in Alabama are Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and Humana Insurance.
Open enrollment will end March 31. Those without health insurance may incur a tax penalty when filing taxes in 2015, which is why officials encourage the public to attend the sessions to learn more about the law.
The sessions will be held on:
Monday, March 10 at 10:00 a.m., Five Points West Library
Monday, March 10, 10:00 a.m. at Smithfield Library
Monday, March 10, 1:00 p.m., Avondale Library
Tuesday, March 11, 10:00 a.m., Smithfield Library
Tuesday, March 11, 4:00 p.m., North Avondale Library
Wednesday, March 12, 3:00 p.m., Springville Road Library
