WEST TEXAS - A forum was held today to inform West Texans about healthcare changes on the way. The West Texas Association of Health Underwriters hosted the event. Industry experts were on hand to teach insurance agents and consumers about the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
"If they are an individual without health insurance making between 100-400 percent of the federal poverty level, they can enroll in the open marketplace and based on their income, they may receive a subsidy to help them afford their health insurance," said Marcy Buckner, National Association of Health Underwriters.
Open enrollment in the marketplace begins October first.
