Help with insurance available
Free help will be available in Marion the last Thursday of every month for the estimated one in seven Marion County residents who do not have health insurance.
State and federal agents will be available from 1 to 4 p.m. at the extension office, 1116 E. Main St., to help people enroll in and answer questions about the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid.
The first walk-in sessions will be this week. They will continue monthly through fall.
More information is available from extension agent Renae Riedy at (785) 263-2001.
