One of the most important issues for the unemployed, after the loss of a paycheck, is health care. To learn about the options available while you are in transition, join PSGMC on Wednesday, April 29th, from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library. 

Nancy Hess, program director for RSVP-NORWESCAP, and Terri Seibert, consumer health advocate, will explain the programs available to workers in transition to ensure access to health care. 

Terri Seibert understands transition from a personal view. A former member of PSGMC, she currently works part time at County College of Morris as a job developer after completing her associate’s and bachelor’s degrees with support from Employment Services and went on to earn a master’s of administrative science from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Terri will speak about transitions in the maze of insurance concepts, The Affordable Care Act as a law, COBRA as a law, and the consumer protections that are key elements to the Health Reform agenda.

She has expanded her credentials for the Affordable Care Act Insurance Marketplace, to not only counsel consumers in the ACA, but also Medicare, Medicaid, and NJ Family Care, the Medicaid Expansion.

Nancy Hess will speak about volunteerism as a pathway to employment and detail how “Bridging Health & Human Services Project” works to educate and enroll northern New Jersey residents into the Affordable Care Act’s Health Insurance Marketplace. 

Founded in 1965, the Northwest New Jersey Community Action Partnership (NORWESCAP) was founded to support low-income households in Warren, Sussex and Hunterdon Counties. Since that time, the organization has expanded into Morris, Somerset and Passaic Counties and grown to assist more than 35,000 individuals each year with a portfolio of emergency, preventative and self-sufficiency services
