$3.8 million for health insurance enrollments

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Nearly $4 million is being made available by the federal government to help uninsured Ohioans enroll for health coverage under federal health care reform, known as “Obamacare.”

An estimated $3.76 million is available to support enrollment at 36 Ohio health centers, including four in Columbus and one in Lancaster, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced Thursday.

The funds are among $150 million in additional federal support to provide in-person assistance at community health centers, Sebelius said.

The funds will allow the centers to hire new staff, train existing staff, and conduct community outreach and other educational activities, Sebelius said.

The health centers are expected to help clients understand coverage options, determine eligibility, and enroll in new health insurance options.

The centers receiving funding in Columbus are the Columbus Neighborhood Health Center, Heart of Ohio Family Health Centers, Lower Light Christian Health Center, Inc., and Southeast, Inc. Also receiving funds is the Fairfield Community Health Cennter.
