Affordable Care Act Seminars At Library

Lateshia Butler of Health Help 
Mississippi (Starkville) and Beth Edwards.  
Lateshia will be conducting the ACA 
seminars at the Library.
The Winston County Library will host two free seminars on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) during November and December. A representative from Health Help Mississippi’s Starkville office will present information on ACA and answer any questions participants may have. Health Help Mississippi, which has locations in Jackson, Hattiesburg, Starkville, Hernando and Greenville, advocates on consumers’ behalf, educating them on their different options for health care, and assisting them in seeing if they could be eligible for any current government programs, such as Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act insurance program.

“All public libraries in the state have been asked by the Mississippi Library Commission to provide information sheets and websites to patrons seeking information on the ACA”, said Winston County Librarian Beth Edwards. “In addition, many libraries in the Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System are setting up public seminars for their communities, similar to the ones we are providing here in Winston County.”

ACA Seminar dates are Thursday, November 13th from 10:00 – 12:00; and Tuesday, December 9th from 11:30 – 1:30. Anyone can call the library in advance or email the library with a question. Mrs. Edwards will give the questions to Health Help Mississippi prior to the seminars, so that full and complete answers can be given to participants. Contact information for the Winston County Library is 662-773-3212 (phone); 662-773-8434 (fax); or winston@mmrls.lib.ms.us (e-mail).
