Welcome to Enroll Quad Cities
On March 23, 2010, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law by President Barack Obama, bringing with it many new changes to our nation's health care system.
Included in these changes is the requirement for nearly all citizens to have some form of health coverage, whether it be private insurance through an employer or the newly-minted exchanges, or a government program like Medicare or Medicaid for those who qualify.
Those who do not find health coverage won't only be missing out on the basic access to health services that comes with having coverage, and putting themselves at financial risk if they were to ever get sick or hurt; they will also be subject to serious penalties at tax time.
The mission of Enroll QC is to enroll the thousands of newly eligible people in our area in an appropriate form of health coverage. We want to make sure they have appropriate access for when they get sick or hurt, and to open up more primary care choices for them as well; to keep them well before they need to come to the emergency room, which is the most expensive and often least effective way of managing an illness.
We first want to direct you to healthcare.gov. There, you will find answers to many of the questions you may have about health reform. There is also a hotline available, 1-800-318-2596.
Genesis Health System also has provided some information about health coverage options. After October 1, you may also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or give them a call at 563-421-ENRL (3675). Genesis will have navigators available to help individuals in the area enroll in coverage, and will be having many community events between October 1 and March 31 at community locations like our libraries.
The tabs at the top of this website include our home page, the page you are viewing right now; calendar of events, where you can view all of our upcoming community events for health enrollment; and our community partners, listing all of our great community organizations who have a hand in enrolling our friends and neighbors.
Thank you for visiting us, and we hope you will take the time to get covered!
