On Saturday, WV Navicare visited the Beckley Hospital to help several West Virginians sign up for health insurance. Navicare, is an agency that works with residents throughout the state of West Virginia to help them sign up for affordable health insurance. Jeremy Smith, who is a health insurance navigator that works for Navicare, stated in an interview with WOAY, “The deadline to enroll in the Marketplace is January 31st. This is a busy time of the year, and people definitely need to pay attention because if you miss the January 31st deadline, you won’t be able to get coverage again until 2018.” Navicare has now been in existence for two years now and this years enrollment for health insurance has been more successful than last years enrollment. Smith stated, “We’ve definitely seen more people reach out to us this year, then they did last year. New laws take time and I think a lot of people just didn’t really realize how the Marketplace worked.” If you missed the event on Saturday and are interested in, in-person help, another event will be taking place this Monday at the Summersville Public Library from 1 p.m. till 6 p.m.
