TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Many organizations in Southern Arizona are stepping in to educate people on their options through the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
As day two of sign up for insurance via the ACA starts, many people are searching for information on where to get started.
In Tucson and Pima County some non-profits are helping to educate about different health plans that are available. The non-profit Enroll America is guiding people to where they can find trained individuals called 'navigators' who can assist them with the enrollment process.
"People don't know where to start," said Pati Urias, from Enroll America. "You can get ahold of us and we can get you with a navigator."
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild held a news conference Tuesday to roll out sign up information on the ACA.
One issue at hand is the possibility of identity theft and other scams. Experts warn that the government will not call out of the blue to set up an insurance plan. For those who believe they are the victim of fraud or potential fraud, report it immediately to local law enforcement.
Again many organizations are at hand with more information on how to get health insurance through the ACA. Places like El Rio Community Health Center locations and the Pima County Health Department.
