With just a month and a half left before all U.S. citizens are required to have some form of health insurance, questions about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) still remain.
Some of the answers were provided at a recent meeting in West Point, led by Jon Bailey, who directs research at the Center for Rural Affairs, and Ashley Frevert of the Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership, now based in Pender.
Frevert is a Field Navigator for the ACA, and is available to help people enroll in an insurance plan, if needed.
Fevert said one misconception about the ACA is that those who don’t have some type of health insurance by March 31 will be assessed a penalty of only $95.
