FERNDALE – On March 8 from 12-3 p.m., Affirmations along with Advantage Health Centers, MichUHCAN and Jamison & Green Associates presents an Obamacare Education and Enrollment event. It is part of a larger effort to encourage the LGBT community to get Out2Enroll.
“The LGBT community can no longer be denied coverage based on who they love or how they identify,” said Affirmations Sexual Health Coordinator, Rose Idzior. “Taking the step to enroll in health care coverage ensures the right to security and wellbeing our community deserves.”
Health care reform through Obamacare ensures equal access to health care coverage for LGBT individuals. Insurance companies can no longer discriminate against individuals based on pre-existing conditions, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Certified application counselors will be on hand to talk about and answer questions regarding Medicaid expansion beginning in Michigan on April 1, along with enrolling participants in private healthcare plans. Andre Wilson, Senior Associate of Jamison Green & Associates, will lend his advice and expertise on transgender health care coverage. This event will provide the LGBT community space to address personal health care coverage concerns.
Participants are encouraged to review Strong Families Guide for LGBT People Choosing Health Care Plans, prior to attending the event. Hard copies are available at Affirmations. Those considering enrolling in health care plans must bring an income statement (e.g. W2, 2013 Final YTD pay stub) and any additional cost information relating to coverage you may be eligible for or have through an employer. Please register for this free event online at
