Let HRMC help you navigate Health Insurance Marketplace

Navigating the world of health insurance can be confusing and overwhelming - but Hutchinson Regional Medical Center is working to make the process quick and painless. 
On Saturday, December 2, HRMC staff will be holding a special weekend event to help people find insurance through the insurance marketplace. Staff will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to offer assistance in finding the right insurance plan. 
Jan Potter, Patient Navigator at HRMC, will distribute information,respond to questions on the enrollment process and be available to help interested parties complete an online application. 
Additionally, HRMC will be on hand from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday until Dec. 15 to help walk people through the application process. Potter said completing an application typically takes about an hour for new enrollees, and a half hour for anyone who is renewing coverage through the marketplace. 
“Most people are seeing cheaper prices than last year,” Potter said. “And the process is easy, and goes pretty smooth.”
After the application process is completed, enrollees will receive an insurance packet in the mail within several weeks. 
Individuals who plan to enroll for health insurance will need to provide the following information about their family and household including:
  • Names, birth dates and Social Security numbers for everyone in the household ----Projected household income for 2018
  • Tax information, such as filing status and number of dependents
  • Immigration documentation and supporting identification numbers
  • An email address to create an online Marketplace account. Assistance can be provided for those who need to create one.

Potter is located near the front entrance to HRMC, by Patient Information. She can also be reached by telephone at 620-513-3177 or by email at potterj@hutchregional.com
