Knox County Community Health Coalition (KCCHC) is partnering with Maine Community Health Options, Allen Insurance & Financial and Penobscot Bay YMCA to provide an informational community forum about the Affordable Care Act, the Health Insurance Marketplace, and the new CO-OP health insurance option for Maine people. 

The forum will be held on September 26th, starting at 6:30 PM, at the Penobscot Bay YMCA Teen Center, 10 Knowlton Street, Camden, in the Multi-Purpose Room. 

“As part of our broad base Public Health initiatives we are helping to present timely information people need to know before the new Health Insurance Marketplace opens on October 1st for coverage beginning January 1st, 2014,” according to Connie Putnam, KCCHC Director.

 Representatives from Maine Community Health Options and Allen Insurance & Financial will be providing information and answering questions about the new health insurance marketplace, the advanced tax credits to help reduce the cost to consumers to get insurance for themselves and their families, and how these changes will affect both individuals and businesses.

 Maine Community Health Options (MCHO) is Maine’s first and only local, nonprofit, member-directed Consumer Operated and Oriented (CO-OP) Health Insurance Company.  For more information about MCHO go to: www.maineoptions.org.  

 KCCHC is part of a statewide system of public health organizations that bring people and resources together to more effectively and efficiently improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve. In addition to its broad based public health activities KCCHC works with Knox County organizations, agencies, schools, municipalities and community members to decrease tobacco and other substance abuse, to increase opportunities for physical activity and healthy eating, and educate about lead poison prevention.  We work with our partners to ensure that making the healthy choice is the easy choice.
