Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

On Monday, December 9, 2013, Working America will host a Health Insurance Enrollment Fair with recommended local licensed agents and Working America staff. Oregon residents can receive personalized help regarding their health insurance questions and applying for insurance through Cover Oregon.

The enrollment fair is one of many that Working America is hosting this month, and it will enable Oregon residents to enroll in health insurance plans that meet their needs and budgets. Licensed agents recommended by Working America will be on-site to guide Oregonians through the enrollment process. Enrollment help will be available throughout the day in half-hour time increments from 5:00 P.M. P.T. to 9:00 P.M. P.T. at High Dive, 1406 SE 12th Avenue in Portland, Oregon.

People who have not been able to afford coverage in the past or who were denied it due to pre-existing conditions may be eligible for plans and financial assistance that will now allow them to afford insurance. Individuals can learn if they qualify for tax credits to lower the cost of their monthly premiums or even get a $0.00 premium plan during a 30-minute session.

Individuals can discuss the following questions and more with licensed agents to help determine whether or not they qualify for financial help: What is my family size? Am I planning to file an income tax return for 2014? Am I offered health insurance coverage through work? And if so, is it affordable and does it meet a minimum value? Do I receive health insurance through a government assistance program such as Medicare, Medicaid, or TRICARE and more.
