Open enrollment through the Affordable Care Act begins today

Today is the day millions of Americans can begin choosing their health insurance plan for 2023 with the Affordable Care Act.

The Biden administration is trying to keep the number of uninsured Americans at a record low.

Health insurance costs for the coming year will remain low for most people because generous grants that started last year have been extended.

This was part of Democrats’ $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill, which boosted enrollments.

All of this means that monthly premium payments stay at zero dollars or just a few dollars a month for most people.

92 percent of Americans looking for insurance coverage have at least three insurance options when choosing their plans.

The registration period runs until January 15th. People should sign up by December 15th if they want to be insured right at the start of the new year.

NICU at Chippenham Hospital is closing

HCA hospitals will be consolidated with Johnston Willis Hospital – as the two are part of the same organization and are only six miles apart.

Last year, Johnston-Willis opened a new, state-of-the-art, 20-bed unit that provides advanced care for babies born with life-threatening conditions.

Heads up!

Those residing at Beechwood Manor in Prince George County are subject to a boil-water recommendation.

The county says workers began drain cleaning yesterday – which could ultimately leave the system vulnerable to contamination.

Officials say the consultation is expected to continue until tomorrow.

The county will let everyone know when it expires.

Warm start to November!

Decreasing clouds mean November will be a comfortable afternoon with plenty of warm air. Highs will be in the mid 70’s.
