Obamacare signup event held Saturday

Posted:

The deadline to sign-up for Obamacare is quickly approaching. If you don't have health care and do not enroll by march 31, you will have to pay a penalty.

Representatives with Christus Hospitals Saturday helped get people signed up. About 200 people got help enrolling at the Christus Outpatient Center on Highway 73 in Port Arthur. A team of certified healthcare navigators were on hand to guide people through the process.

"The insurance exchange can be very difficult to navigate, so we've brought in people who can help walk people through the process, help them understand the options that are available, compare different plans," said Heather Boler with Christus Healthcare.

Christus held a similar sign-up two weeks ago at Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth where more than 300 people attended.
