Free healthcare seminar for Americus
Phoebe Sumter and Seed Co. hosted a free health care seminar in Americus Saturday afternoon.
Residents would first see a presentation about the Affordable Care Act to learn about plans that are available. Then, residents would get more information from a navigator, a person there to help sign you up, and give you the amount of your co-pay.
Bill Wrencher says, "Health care is very complicated, insurance, is very complicated insurance is very complicated and a lot of people that are targeted by this law are folks that never really had insurance before. "
The minimum income for one person to sign up for the Affordable Care Act would be $11,490
Wrencher said, "The maximum amount is about $46,000, and for a family of four, the maximum amount is $94,000 which is substantial so I think some of the tax credits really go well into the middle class."
This was the last health seminar in Southwest Georgia.
