The main reason someone walks through our door is for assistance with a health coverage application, but at the WHP we make it a priority to do much more. By the time you leave our office, we hope you find yourself with a greater understanding of the ACA and the rules of the program we applied for.
Providing this education lets each person take power of their coverage and they can then help us disseminate accurate information throughout the community.
Here are some examples...

What is a deductible? Does my doctor take this insurance? See Health Insurance 101 for key words we explain as we fill out a Marketplace application, and watch the video below for a great visual presentation by the Kaiser Family Foundation!
