Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events invite you to the 2014 Chicago Artists Health Care Town Hall on Friday, December 5, 4–8pm at the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington. The town hall event is part of Mayor Emanuel’s Enroll Chicago! initiative to provide uninsured Chicago residents with information and resources that will enable them to take full advantage of new options available to them under the Affordable Care Act.

“Too many artists are uninsured. This event is a terrific opportunity to learn how to obtain health insurance with full benefits at a reasonable cost,” said Mayor Emanuel.

At this free event, people can learn about the Affordable Care Act, meet with a state-certified Enrollment Navigator to sign up for insurance, get a free flu shot and connect with a range of health organizations and services including Health and Disability Advocates, MusiCares, and more.

James Brown, Director of National Health Services at The Actors Fund, and founder of AHIRC (Artists Health Insurance Resouce), will present on the basics of insurance and explain how the Affordable Care Act works.

While the event is free, reservations for a Navigator Appointment are requested by December 1. Click here to RSVP. Navigator Appointment / Wait List confirmation and instructions will be emailed prior to the event.

If you plan to sign up for health insurance, be sure to bring the following documents:

A valid social security number (or document number for legal residents) Employer and income verification for household (W-2, pay-stubs, etc.) Policy numbers for any current health insurance plans. The 2014 Chicago Artists Health Care Town Hall is presented by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in partnership with the Chicago Department of Public Health, The Actors Fund, MusiCares, Enroll America | Get Covered America, and the Hearst Foundations.
