Hospital offers insurance enrollment help

Community Howard Regional Health, affiliated with Community Health Network and in partnership with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, has announced plans to assist the uninsured with enrollment in the Indiana Health Insurance Marketplace. Under an agreement with Anthem, Community Health Network physicians, hospitals and facilities will serve as the primary provider network for Central Indiana residents who purchase an Anthem health benefits plan on the Indiana Health Insurance Marketplace, or “exchange.”

“Community is pleased to offer increased access to quality health care through the Indiana Health Insurance Marketplace,” said Brian Schlagenhauf, vice president of managed care, in a press release. “We believe our partnership with Anthem allows those who need health insurance most to obtain the lowest cost plans. Licensed insurance brokers representing Anthem will be a critical component in the enrollment process and can help consumers find the right plan to meet their individual needs.”

Enrollment can happen online, on the phone, in person, or at a caller’s home, if that’s the most convenient option.

To assist patients and health care consumers, Community Howard is offering enrollment events from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 24, Nov. 13 and Dec. 18 in the Main Campus East Lobby off U.S. 31.

Those who want to enroll for coverage during one of these sessions should bring the following: Social Security numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants); employer and income information for every member of the household who needs coverage (pay stubs or W-2 forms — wage and tax statements); policy numbers of any current health insurance plans covering members of the household; and a completed Employer Coverage Tool for every job-based plan members of a household are eligible for (available on eCommunity.com/enroll).

The deadline for consumers to enroll in the Marketplace is Dec. 15 for coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2014. The final deadline to enroll is March 31, 2014. For more information on the Indiana Health Insurance Marketplace, visit: communityhoward.com, eCommunity.com/enroll, or call 765-453-8181, 317-883-5680, or 855-365-9300.
