Healthcare help available

With the Health Insurance Marketplace officially closed for open enrollment, many consumers still have questions. To assist individuals in understanding the new healthcare laws, Washington Morgan Community Action is partnering with the Ohio Association of Foodbanks to offer free assistance to consumers.

Free application assistance is still available for those facing qualified life events including the loss of Insurance coverage (private or employer), or household changes such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child and relocation.

The deadline does not apply to Ohio’s Medicaid expansion, applications and enrollments will be done continuously throughout the year.

Residents interested in making an appointment for enrollment can call Washington Morgan Community Action at (740) 373-3745.

Ohioans can visit to apply on their own. Those seeking help with enrolling can call 1-800-648-1176 or visit to find assistance.
