In Texas, there are more than 5 million people who currently are without health insurance. A large percentage of the 5+ million are 18-35 years of age. Tarrant County College students who wish to enroll for health insurance will be able to learn about their options on Nov. 14 and Nov. 15.
CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) will be on each of TCC’s five campuses from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to educate students about their insurance options and to help them navigate the enrollment process should the students so choose.
On each of the two days, CMS will host two informational sessions (including a question and answer period). Navigators will be on hand to help student enroll either online or via paper application.
CMS is providing education and enrollment assistance across our region to a variety of audiences. As a federal agency, CMS offers unbiased information regarding the statutes under which the Marketplace operates. They are not agents or brokers, do not charge for this service, nor are they compensated by any health insurance plan for what they do.
TCC campuses and addresses are: Northeast, 828 W. Harwood Road, Hurst; Northwest, 4801 Marine Creek Parkway; South, 5301 Campus Drive; Southeast, 2100 Southeast Parkway, Arlington; and Trinity River, 300 Trinity Campus Circle.
