Mazzochi Hosting Health Insurance & Wellness Fair to Encourage Participation in the Open Enrollment Period

WESTMONT—State Representative Deanne Mazzochi (R-Elmhurst) is hosting an upcoming Health Insurance and Wellness Fair for her district residents. The event is FREE and will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 9:00am to noon at The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) of Westmont.

“I am committed to helping expand health insurance coverage to all my constituents.  Every Illinoisan deserves to have access to all the options the state and private insurers make available,” said Rep. Mazzochi. “The Health Insurance and Wellness Fair purposely coincides with the open enrollment period to make sure as many needy residents can sign up as possible. Experts will be on hand to help residents easily navigate the insurance enrollment process as well as provide great resources to keep you healthy leading into our winter months.”

The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) of Westmont is located at 55 E 63rd Street, Westmont, Il 60559.

Representatives from the Illinois Department of Insurance, Get Covered Illinois, and other agencies will be available to discuss health insurance options, including Medicaid and private plans. The open enrollment period is from November 1 to December 15 and representatives will be helping residents determine eligibility. Additionally, local hospitals and healthcare organizations will be offering helpful guides, free brochures and information on the services they offer.

According to healthcare.gov, outside the Open Enrollment Period, residents generally can enroll in a health insurance plan only if they qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. However, eligibility may change if certain life events like getting married, having a baby, or losing other health coverage occur.

Residents are encouraged to mark their calendars now for this informative event. Should you have any questions about the Health Insurance and Wellness Fair, please contact Rep. Mazzochi’s district office at (630) 852-8633.
