Local healthcare navigators are staying busy, helping to sign people up for insurance plans by the December 23rd deadline, so that they’ll be covered by January 1.

Southeast Lancaster Health Services has an enrollment office in Lancaster.

Outreach and enrollment coordinator Daniel Sosa said his office has had a lot of appointments in the past two weeks with people wanting to enroll in healthcare plans.

“Today’s an important deadline, but it’s not the ultimate deadline,” he said. “Some people think that this is the day, but it’s not really the day. We keep going into the new year and into the next few months, so there’s still plenty of time for people to find a plan that is good for them.”

Southeast Lancaster Health Services’ enrollment assistance is free of charge, you just have to make an appointment. You can call 717-917-3756 or 717-847-3442 to learn more.
