Veterans Help People Sign Up for Insurance Plans Under ACA

NJ Spotlight | January 26, 2014 | Affordable Care Act

U.S. military veterans are serving on a new mission at Cape Regional Medical Center: They’ve been trained as Certified Application Counselors (CACs) to help people sign up for medical coverage available under the Affordable Care Act through the new health insurance marketplace, Medicaid and NJ FamilyCare.

Help is offered on Mondays and Fridays, with appointments available at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. by calling the medical center at (609) 463-4040.

Sponsors of the program include the New Jersey Hospital Association and New Jersey Health Initiatives, with financial support provided by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The CACs are also working at other hospitals and sites around the state; visit the NJHA website for more information about how to get help with insurance sign-ups.
