Hilltop’s Health Access offers insurance assistance

Hilltop’s Health Access offers public assistance in enrolling for health insurance for the coming year.

A certified assistance site for Connect for Health, Hilltop’s Health Access offers people help in comparing health insurance coverage options, calculating potential tax credits based on their incomes, navigating the online process and ultimately enrolling for health insurance.

The open enrollment period for health insurance runs through Jan. 12. Under the Affordable Care Act, people must be enrolled in a health plan by that date to avoid penalties.

Hilltop’s Health Access must review plans by Dec. 15 to ensure coverage by Jan. 12.

Hilltop’s Health Access operates an office at 1129 Colorado Ave. in Grand Junction. For an appointment or more information, call 244-0850 or visit www.hilltopshealthaccess.org.
