Help available to find affordable health care

Three months ago, The Baltimore Sun published a commentary regarding the importance of making efforts in easing the stress of accessing health insurance (“New report shows strides, setbacks for America’s children,” June 13). With all the coverage of the Affordable Care Act and the prospects for it being repealed, there are a lot of unanswered questions about accessing health insurance. Parents have a lot on their plate, especially during back-to-school time, and finding affordable insurance is often confusing and stressful.

Seedco is a non-profit organization that is available to assist parents in enrolling their families in health insurance. Focusing on public education and culturally sensitive face-to-face enrollment services, Seedco strives to create a user-friendly and accessible environment for families enrolling in health insurance. I urge your readers who feel they could benefit from such services to contact Mark Romaninsky at MRomaninsky@seedco.org for more information.
