Affordable Care Act Enrollment help

An important deadline to sign up for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Marketplace is quickly approaching.

The Social Development Commission is partnering with several agencies to help residents beat that deadline.

The ACA Marketplace enrollment ends March 31 for coverage to be effective in 2014.

To help provide information on the program and to start signing up, SDC is teaming with the Milwaukee City Health Department, Milwaukee Health Services, the Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin and Outreach Community Health Center.

Trained counselors from those organizations are staffing several SDC sites to provide information on the ACA and to enroll them.

They are also able to help residents with enrollment in BadgerCare, Medicaid, FoodShare and Child Care.

The ACA Enrollment help is available at SDC offices at 4041 N. Richards on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 4 pm.

They are also at SDC’s facility at 6848 N. Teutonia Avenue on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 am to 4 pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 2 pm.

Residents wishing to see a counselor should bring a photo ID, their social security card and an income statement for the last 30 days.

No appointment is needed.
