First Care Clinic’s Certified Navigator, Sayre Shuck, will be  at the Ellis Public Library Tuesday, January 7 at 7:00 p.m. to answer questions regarding health insurance offered under the Affordable Care Act.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed into law March 31, 2010.

As a result all individuals and families are required to have health insurance beginning in 2014.  Otherwise, they will have to pay a fee when filing their 2014 income taxes.  There are tax credits to help pay monthly premiums and cost share reductions to assist with deductibles, coinsurance and co-pays for those who qualify.
