District 21 delegation to host health care forum Saturday at Laurel High

The Oct. 1 government shutdown has not affected the District 21-sponsored health care forum, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Laurel High School, 8000 Cherry Lane.

Open enrollment has begun for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. Under Obamacare, most Americans will be required to have health insurance beginning in 2014. Those who let the registration deadline pass without signing up will have to pay a penalty.

At the forum, health care experts will educate people about their coverage options and, if attendees choose, help them sign up for a plan.

For more information and to register, go to 21stdistrictdelegation.com or call 301-858-3141.

To sign up for health care online, Laurel residents who live in Prince George's County can go to the Capital Region connector's website capitalhealthconnection.org. Laurel residents in Howard County can get help at doortohealthcare.org and Anne Arundel County residents can go to healthcareaccessmaryland.org.
