Obamacare enrollment starts October 1

            For so many of our clients, the lack of access to medical care is a significant problem.  With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the federal government is seeking to get as many Americans insured as possible through the individual mandate.  If you are not already covered by health insurance, you will need to apply for health insurance through the state exchanges.  You will also apply for subsidies in the form of tax credits if you need help paying for the insurance.  Open enrollment through the exchanges begins October1.  Coverage will then begin January 1.  Open enrollment ends by March 31, 2014, at which time open enrollment closes.  For information please go to HealthCare.gov which links to the Health Insurance Market Place.

Manitowoc to be home to two new community clinics

According to the Lakeshore Chronicle, two clinics for low- and no-income individuals are opening on October 1, 2013. These clinics are the Red Shield Health Clinic, 402 N. 9th St, Manitowoc.  Services are available on Tuesdays from 5 – 10p.m.  The clinic’s phone number is (920) 684-7117.  Also, Community Clinics of Manitowoc County is opening at 600 York St, Manitowoc. That clinic will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.  Community Clinics of Manitowoc County can be reached at (920) 320-6775.

Winter Chewning & Geary believes it is important to keep our clients informed of free and low cost health care.  Too many of our clients lack access to the treatment they need.  Hopefully with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, all of our clients will have access to necessary health care, but if not clinics for low- and no-income individuals are a valuable community resource.
