On June 14 starting at 2 p.m., Benefits Consultant Dave G. Maddock with Maddock & Associates will be a panelist in an upcoming Twitter chat aimed at educating recent young college graduates about their health insurance needs.
The Twitter chat will feature a panel of health insurance experts who will answer questions on @waplanfinder that come in over Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #GetCoveredGrads. The expert panel will discuss the types of plans available to grads and how to get help if they can’t afford coverage.
What Is the Purpose of the Twitter Chat?
The Twitter chat will be hosted by Washington Healthplanfinder (the Washington State health insurance exchange) and the Young Invincibles, a national nonprofit organization whose goal is to give young adults a bigger voice in major national issues, including the healthcare reform debate.
The chat is designed to answer health coverage questions posed by college students, who must enroll in a health insurance plan within 60 days of losing their student health plan. College students who do not enroll within that 60-day special enrollment period will not be able to enroll in a health plan until the next open enrollment period in November for coverage beginning in 2015.
