The deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act is quickly approaching and Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell wants to remind his constituents who need health insurance to sign up as soon as possible.
More than 4.2 million Americans have already enrolled in various healthcare plans as part of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Those who have not enrolled for health coverage by the March 31 deadline may see penalties on their 2014 federal taxes.
An informational meeting will take place in Echo Park for those who want more information on the enrollment process and the benefits.
The event will take place on Tuesday, March 18, from 4 pm to 8 pm at the Sandra Cisneros Learning Academy, 1018 Mohawk St. Los Angeles, CA 90026.
The event is sponsored by SEIU-UHW. Those interested in attending are asked to call (888) 920-4517 first to find out if they are ready to enroll.
