Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Now that the Federal enrollment insurance program is in place, University of Mississippi Medical Center staff is available to help sign up uninsured patients for affordable health insurance.

Thanks to an $832,000 Federal grant, 36 University of Mississippi Medical Center employees have been trained as insurance navigators. The navigators are available to help uninsured patients pick the best private insurance company from a variety of options.

UMMC will soon have a number for people to call if they're interested in making an appointment with a navigator.

In the meantime, those interested in learning more about insurance options can go online to www.healthcare.gov or call 800- 318-2596.

Coverage can begin January 1, 2014 and enrollment ends March 31st of next year.
