Health care providers and insurance brokers are making sure residents in Door County do not go uninsured in 2020. Over 11 million Americans use HealthCare.gov to get health insurance, though the U.S. Census Bureau reports 27 million people went uninsured in 2018. Door County Medical Center is one agency helping people navigate the health insurance game with a series of open enrollment events, including one Tuesday afternoon. DCMC Team Lead Patient Advocate Cassie Olson says they helped 120 people last year get insured by helping them answer questions and consider options.
Olson says you must bring the social security numbers for all immediate family members, proof of income, and email address to the events. If you cannot make it on Tuesday, Door County Medical Center will host similar open enrollment events on November 21st and December 7th. You can find a full schedule below:
- November 5th from 2-7 p.m.
- November 21st from 1-6 p.m.
- December 7th from 8 a.m.-noon
