Final health insurance library session to be held Sunday

The last Affordable Care Act library information session will be held at the Westminster branch of the Carroll County Public Library Sunday in advance of the March 31 deadline to enroll in health plans.

Trained officials will be on site to offer advice and assistance to those seeking to enroll in a qualified health plan or Medicaid through the state's health insurance marketplace, called Maryland Health Connection, according to a Carroll County Public Library news release.

The event will be held from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at the library, located at 50 E. Main St. in Westminster.

Attendees should bring their Social Security number, birth date, employer and income information, policy numbers for any current health insurance and information about available job-related health insurance for all household members.
