Insurance assistance group provides ACA enrollment info at USM

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Students at the University of Southern Mississippi got some valuable information about the Affordable Care Act Wednesday, courtesy of the Mississippi Health Access Collaborative. 

That organization, which provides navigators to help enroll people for health insurance, handed out free information at the Thad Cochran Center and spoke to students about the open enrollment period for insurance through Healthcare.gov. 

That period runs from Nov. 1 - Dec. 15 and is six weeks shorter than previous enrollment periods.
