About

Join us Wednesday, October 12th from 6-7:30pm for a Volunteer Information Session to find out how you can help your neighbors enroll in affordable health care. You will learn:

  • Why your help is needed and the impact it will make
  • What the Certified Application Counselor (CAC) role entails
  • The basics of the Affordable Care Act
  • How to get the training you need to be successful (it's online and FREE)
  • What's involved during an enrollment session with a client
  • Time and commitment expectations
  • Much more

As a CAC you will assist at a variety of open enrollment events throughout the Northern Virginia region to help individuals and families understand their health coverage options, walk through the steps to enroll in a qualified health care plan and understand their benefits. The Affordable Care Act's 4th Open Enrollment cycle runs November 1, 2016 - January 31, 2017.

RSVP to Terry at tgoplerud@nvfs.org. Attending doesn't obligate you to sign up to volunteer.
