Insurance Marketplace Opens Today

PENDER The federally facilitated marketplace for health insurance officially opens today, and navigators are standing by in Northeast Nebraska to help area citizens. Mary Reeson with the Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership says ten navigators will provide assistance in the main office in Pender and at other offices around the 14-county area. She says a session with a navigator can also be arranged by appointment. Navigators can assist citizens with using the website and they can answer questions, but they may not give any advice on which insurance plan to select. To arrange for a visit with a navigator, call the Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership office at 402-385-6300.
