There are six days remaining before the final January 31 deadline to get 2016 health insurance coverage. Families are encouraged to stop by for support navigating the healthcare enrollment process — the event and enrollment help are provided at no cost.

For families concerned about cost, Enroll America, a Healthy Together partner notes:
- 4 out of 5 Pennsylvanians who have signed up for coverage have received some kind of financial assistance to reduce their health insurance costs. And, for those who remain uninsured, a fine of at least $695 may apply on next year’s taxes.
- For those with qualifying income ($16,243 for a single person, $33,465 for a family of four), Pennsylvania’s HealthChoices program may be available to provide coverage with no monthly premium.
The Healthy Together partnership is a collaborative between the Mayor’s Office and Consumer Health Coalition, Allies for Children, Enroll America, and Allegheny County Health Department. Healthy Together is a project of Live Well Pittsburgh.
