Get covered at The Hippodrome!

The Hippodrome in Downtown Gainesville will sponsor open enrollment in Marketplace health plans on November 16th from 1 to 6 p.m.

The Hippodrome, WellFlorida Council, Suwannee River AHEC, GetCoveredAmerica, and The America Epilepsy Foundation of Florida, are cosponsoring the healthcare event.

Open enrollment is being held at the theater to emphasize the importance of Gainesville artists getting insured. The event hopes to get every local artist covered.

Most Americans receive health insurance as a benefit from their employer but artists are three times more likely to be self-employed. David O’Malley, an event organizer, explained, “The uninsured rate for artists was more than twice that for average Americans.”

Of course, the event is not just exclusively for artists. Everyone is welcome to come and explore affordable health coverage options.

Trained Marketplace Navigators will be available for personal assistance. Did you know? People who get face-to-face assistance from local Navigators are twice as likely to successfully enroll than those who shopped online.

To make an appointment, please email Dave O’Malley at The Hippodrome is located on 25 SE 2nd Place, Gainesville, FL 32601.
