Navigators will be present at all events and assistance in Spanish will be available.

These events are free and open to the public. Attendees who wish to enroll should take the following information for each person in their household:

The next open enrollment period will be Wednesday, Oct. 15, through Sunday, Dec. 7. Individuals and families who experience a life-changing event, lose their insurance, or relocate may be eligible for a special enrollment period at any time.
Enrollment in a health-insurance plan through the Marketplace is necessary to lower monthly plan premiums and out-of-pocket costs. The Alamo Area Council of Governments has been providing outreach, education, and enrollment services to help those without insurance obtain coverage.
These services are provided by certified navigators who are trained concerning the Health Insurance Marketplace and are certified to answer questions, estimate tax credits and plan costs, compare plans, and assist with enrollment.
Registration is not necessary, but recommended. For more information or to register, call 1-800-960-5201.
