            Akron, Ohio (March 6, 2014) -  With the March 31, 2014, deadline for enrollment in a Health Care Marketplace plan quickly approaching, Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic and County Executive Russ Pry have designated March as “Enroll Akron” and “Enroll Summit County” month.

            “Many of our residents forgo health care to buy necessities, such as shelter, food and clothing,” noted Mayor Plusquellic.  “The Affordable Care Act will help our residents get the medical care they need. Our residents should not have to choose between food and their health and the health of their families.”

            “Medical services provided by the Affordable Care Act are important for all ages, especially for our youngest citizens,” said Executive Russ Pry.  “We know a healthy child learns faster and grows stronger, giving them a great advantage in life.” 

            All plans in the ACA Marketplace cover essential health benefits and pre-existing conditions.  To find the latest, most accurate, information about the Marketplace, go to HealthCare.gov.  At this website, residents can learn how the marketplace works, who can apply for insurance, how to get insurance, how to lower your costs, and more; and Summit County Health, Akron General, and the City of Akron have coordinated to offer many events starting with an enrollment event this Saturday, March 8th, 9am to 1 pm, in Akron General’s Conference Auditorium, located at One Akron General Ave.  The event is FREE and open to the public, but space is limited so please RSVP to 330-344-2462 or at getcoveredamerica.org.
