Norwalk CHC offers Access Health CT Enrollment assistance

Norwalk Community Health Center, Inc.(NCHC) wants to remind Greater Norwalk & Fairfield County residents that it has five (5) Certified Application Counselors available to help them navigate the enrollment process, by appointment by calling 203-899-1770.

Access Health CT insurance enrollment for 2018 begins November 1, 2017 and ends December 22, 2017. Coverage will begin January 1, 2018 for those who sign up during the enrollment period. 

NCHC is a nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Center and a level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home that provides comprehensive health and dental care to men, women and children in Fairfield County, regardless of ability to pay. NCHC provides services at its 120 Connecticut Ave., Norwalk location and aboard its Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) in Norwalk and Westport.

Access Health CT is for Connecticut residents who need health care coverage, which are not enrolled in Medicare or eligible for free Medicare Part A or who are insured but looking to see if they can qualify for affordability programs.

People unsure about their eligibility for Access Health CT (AHC), which plan would be best for them or their family, or if they qualify for financial help to pay for their coverage or special plans that lower the amount they have to pay out-of-pocket for medical care are encouraged to call NCHC at 203-899-1770 for an appointment with one of our AHC Certified Application Counselors. Although NCHC welcomes all residents to make the Health Center their medical home for pediatric, adult, women’s, behavioral and dental health, they do not need to be NCHC patients to receive Access Health CT assistance from a Certified Application Counselor.

Once someone has an appointment, they are asked to bring the following documents with them. It will help determine the plan and any discount eligibility and make the enrollment process go more smoothly.

• Birthdates for all family members who need coverage.
• Social Security Numbers for all family members who need coverage (or a valid reason for not having one at the time of enrollment).
• Citizenship or immigration status and certificate of naturalization or immigration document number, if applicable.
• Tax returns for previous years – these can help you estimate your annual Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) for your application.
• Recent paychecks or profit and loss statement (if self-employed) – these can help you estimate your monthly Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) for your application.
• Information about your employer and any health plans they offer.
• Health care coverage information (policy numbers for any current health insurance plans covering members of your household).

Please contact Norwalk Community Health Center at 203-899-1770 to make an appointment with one of NCHC’s Certified Application Counselors.
