Enrollment fair to help those seeking insurance

Griffin Hospital will host a health insurance enrollment fair on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 11-3 p.m. to assist anyone looking to enroll in Access Health CT, the state health insurance exchange.

The fair will be held in the hospital’s Meditation and Learning Center, 130 Division Street, Derby. Certified health insurance assisters will offer guidance when selecting coverage, verify that all paperwork is completed properly, check if an individual qualifies for financial aid, and help complete enrollment.
