Keenan & Associates helps Farm Bureau members with health care
October 22, 2013
To help Farm Bureau members navigate the changing health-care landscape, the California Farm Bureau Federation has partnered with the largest privately held insurance broker in the state. Keenan & Associates will offer its services, free of charge, to Farm Bureau members seeking individual insurance coverage best suited to themselves and their families.
Open enrollment in individual health plans under the federal Affordable Care Act began Oct. 1 and continues through March 31, 2014. People covered by individual health insurance plans have until then to enroll in a new, ACA-compliant health insurance program; to assure coverage on Jan. 1, people should enroll by mid-December. Because Keenan offers plans from a number of insurers, it can provide unbiased guidance to help Farm Bureau members find the coverage and value that best fits their health insurance needs.
"Farm Bureau is proud to assist our members and others as we adapt to this new pattern in health care," CFBF President Paul Wenger said. "During this unusual period, when millions of people will need to change their coverage to one that's accepted under ACA guidelines, Keenan can help Farm Bureau members make the transition as smoothly as possible. It's important for people covered by individual plans to contact Keenan or their current broker."
Keenan & Associates is certified by the Covered California health insurance exchange and can help those eligible for a federal premium subsidy under the ACA select coverage through the exchange. It can also guide clients to qualifying plans outside the exchange and answer questions about what plans and providers are available in an individual's community, throughout California.
To use the free Keenan services, Farm Bureau members may go online at www.cafbhealth.com or call toll-free 855-4-CAFBHEALTH (855-422-3243).
