People can find help with the Affordable Care Act from free resources and events at branches of the Pierce County Library System, including Graham and Eatonville.
In partnership with the Tacoma Pierce-County Health Department, the libraries will provide opportunities for uninsured county residents to learn about their options under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Free access to computers and information will help residents enroll in a health insurance plan that best meets their needs, officials said.
The Library System will provide the service during the open enrollment for healthcare coverage, which is continuing through March 31, 2014.
