Staff from U.S. Rep. Ron Kind's office will be holding open office hours in Black River Falls on Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the Jackson County Courthouse board room on the second floor.
Representatives are holding office hours in all 18 counties within Kind's Third Congressional District during November.
Given the lack of information, it is important to let people know that they must take action to re-enroll or get health coverage by Dec. 15 or risk not having coverage in 2018 and having to pay the penalty.
“It is important to me, and to my office, that we are always available and working to help the residents of central and western Wisconsin,” said Rep. Ron Kind. “As Wisconsinites begin to take advantage of the open enrollment period to get health care coverage or make changes to their current health care plan, I hope people utilize my office to access resources and ability to get in contact with the right person to help them sign up and get covered.”
Rep. Kind’s office can assist people having issues dealing with the Healthcare Open Enrollment Process, as well as with the Department of Veteran Affairs, the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security Administration, Immigration and Naturalization Service and a number of other Federal agencies.
The Jackson County Courthouse is at 307 Main St. in Black River Falls.
