Miami Dade College (MDC) is hosting a series of Enroll America health insurance workshops to provide information and assistance to students and the community regarding the Affordable Care Act.
Florida’s insurance marketplace is offering new health plans for individuals without insurance that cover the basics — doctor visits, hospital stays, preventive care, prescriptions, and more.
Trained representatives will help guide MDC students, eligible family members, and the community at large, and provide them with the right resources to aid in the application and enrollment process for the selection of the optimal health insurance plan. In fact, the workshops will take place in computer courtyards where participants will have the opportunity to apply.
MDC students may benefit from the new no- and low-cost health insurance options that will be available including: the ability to join a parent’s plan until age 26; tax credits to help pay for health insurance; improved student health insurance plans, and catastrophic plans that provide emergency coverage at a lower, upfront cost. No one will be turned away for having a pre-existing condition.
