Enrollment begins on Tuesday, Nov. 1, and ends on Tuesday, Jan. 31, and LCH has full-time staffers who are trained and ready to help community members navigate the marketplace health insurance plans, according to a LCH press release.

“Whether you are currently uninsured or already covered, enrollment is the one time of the year to enroll in a plan, review and switch to another plan that might suit you better, or simply renew and update the plan that you already use,” Ted Trevorrow, outreach and enrollment coordinator-navigator at LCH, said in the release. “Our team can help you with any questions you may have, and how to take the next steps towards protecting yourself and your family.”

Free marketplace assistance in English or Spanish is available by appointment; hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to noon on Friday. Call 610-444-7550 and ask for a health insurance appointment. LCH is located at 731 West Cypress Street in Kennett Square.
