For people wondering what to do about complying with the Affordable Care Act, a new company has opened four new East Tennessee locations, including one in Blount County, to show how to get “affordable” health insurance.
Knoxville-based Enroll Health opened an office at Foothills Mall in Maryville, along with two in Knoxville and one in Cleveland.
The service provided by the company, a division of Enrollment First Inc., is to demonstrate how easy and affordable it is to get health coverage, according to Hazen Mirts, president and CEO of Enroll Health.
“People really don’t understand the Affordable Care Act,” he said. “We’re helping people who have had insurance for years, and we’re helping people who have never had health coverage.”
The company works with all major health insurance providers, and receives commissions from those firms. Enroll Health reviews a person’s situation and shows them all of the options available to them for free, according to the company.
It also determines if that individual qualifies for subsidies to offset the cost of their coverage. The entire process takes only minutes and costs nothing, according to the company.
“Many times we can find better coverage at a lower price,” Mirts said. “Enroll Health can get health insurance for someone for as little as $50 per month, and many people qualify for monthly premiums lower than that.”
Enroll Health will also conduct a fast, free review of health care options by phone at 865- 243-3900. For more information, visit www.EnrollHealth.com.
