Events are scheduled throughout the Upstate, Midlands and Pee Dee Region to help South Carolinians access health coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Marketplace. With a shortened enrollment window and fewer resources dedicated to enrollment, the healthcare community hopes to increase awareness and help more people access affordable health coverage.

The events are being hosted through a partnership between the South Carolina Hospital Association, the SC Primary Health Care Association, McLeod Health, Palmetto Health, Baptist Easley, Access Health, Palmetto Project, Lourie Life and Health, and Insurance Advantage. Open enrollment for 2018 will end December 15.
