Covering Kids and Families — “Pace helps with Federal Marketplace open enrollment”

Washington Times-Herald, October 21, 2019

Pace Community Action Agency, Inc. and Covering Kids and Families are partnered to help consumers navigate through the insurance enrollment process and with selecting a health insurance plan that best suits the individual or their family.

The Federal Marketplace open enrollment period begins on Nov. 1 and concludes Dec. 15.
