TRENTON - In response to the strong attendance at a recent Affordable Care Act information session sponsored by Mercer County, County Executive Brian M. Hughes has called for a repeat.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), which took effect this month, requires all Americans by law to have health insurance. Mercer County’s next Affordable Care Act Seminar, Health Insurance 101: What You Need to Know About the Affordable Care Act, will be Thursday, Feb. 20, from 6 to 7 p.m. at County Connection in Hamilton. Attendees will be given advice on how to navigate the system, understand the new healthcare choices, learn how to enroll and understand how the new Act affects families, small businesses, young adults, early retirees and people who work for themselves. The information session is free of charge.

“Navigating the Affordable Care Act process can be confusing for some,” said Hughes. “By offering this seminar, we hope to shed light on how the ACA can help people who might not otherwise have health insurance.”

The enrollment assistance program will be presented by Argelys Morel, Member Engagement & Outreach Associate, Health Republic Insurance of New Jersey. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Please call County Connection at 609-890-9800 to register. County Connection is located on Route 33 in Hamilton in the Acme Shopping Center.
