Hospital to help enroll in health-care insurance

South Peninsula Hospital is offering walk-in services for enrollment in the health-care insurance marketplace. It will be held near the hospital’s front desk registration offices from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 22 and 29. Appointments are encouraged, but not required.

To schedule an appointment call Ronda at 235-0298 or Claire at 235-0354. If neither are available, leave a message and someone will return your call to set up an appointment. 

Applicants will need their Social Security numbers or document numbers for legal immigrants, estimated income information for 2014 for every member of the household who needs coverage, and an insurance plan number if they are currently insured by their employer.

For more information, contact hospital registration at 235-0298 or, to enroll over the telephone, call Enroll Alaska toll free 855-385-5550.

The last day of open enrollment is March 31. Alaskans have until that date to get enrolled into health insurance to avoid a tax penalty.
