Health Agents Concerned but Covered California Promises to be Ready Oct. 1

CoveredCAAnnouncementDepending on who is talking, the Affordable Care Act health insurance enrollment starting Oct. 1 will be exciting or chaotic. Philanthropy director Naomi Brauner is excited about plans to train a dozen people to become “certified application counselors,” helping people enroll in health insurance plans made possible by the Affordable Care Act. “We’re going to hit the ground running,” she said, noting counselors will undergo two-and-a-half days of training later this month and be available at the Live Oak Family Resource Center, Mountain Community Resources in Felton, La Familia in Santa Cruz, La Manzana in Watsonville and the Women Infants and Children nutrition sites according to a recent report in the Santa Cruz Sentinal.
