Sen. Steve Tolman is teaming up with Reps. Kevin Honan and Michael Moran and the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority to provide information about the state’s new health care reform law and enroll local residents.
The “Connect to Health” enrollment event will be held Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 4-7:30 p.m. at the Kells, 161 Brighton Ave,. Allston.
The Joseph M. Smith Community Health Center, Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center and the Boston Public Health Commission’s Mayor’s Health Line will also be co-sponsors, and they will send local enrollment experts to participate in the event.
Adults who do not have health insurance this year will lose their personal exemption worth $219 when they file their next state tax return. Penalties will be significantly higher beginning Jan. 1.
Detailed information on the new health plans is also available on the Health Connector’s website, www.MAhealthconnector.org, or by calling 1-877-MA-ENROLL.
