Help is on the way... to get you signed up for healthcare under the Affordable Care Act. Sunday.. the organization "Get Covered America" invites you to sign up with their help. The event will take place at the Urban League Center in Springfield from noon to 4pm. Organizers say most people don't know how to get the best insurance plan for their needs.
"A lot of people just don't know what all their new options are," says field organizer, Jimmy Dahman. " You know, financial assistance is finally available for the first time. So to get people to realize that, you know, they can get quality insurance affordably has been the number one goal of ours."
Each attendee will be paired with a navigator to lead them through the healthcare application process. The event is free.
