Some Local Healthcare Providers Prepared To Help Uninsured Navigate A.C.A. Enrollment
As the Affordable Care Act’s enrollment period opens, some affiliated healthcare providers are reaching out to uninsured Granite Staters.
Planned Parenthood of Northern New England was one of two local providers picked to help consumers navigate the new health insurance markets.
In a conference call with reporters, Planned Parenthood’s, Jennifer Frizzell says her organization’s first target will be its own patient population.
“We have six health centers that serve patients throughout the state of New Hampshire. We see close to 16,000 patients a year and we know that more than 55% percent of them, or a little over 8,000, are uninsured now.”
Frizzell added that the $145,161 in federal funding it received to help local residents will pay for three new hires and training for nine existing employees.
