KWA will be pioneering the Washington Health Benefits Exchange program beginning October 1st, 2013. Residents will now have a new way to find, compare and enroll in health insurance. It will give individuals and families the confidence to choose the plan that best fits their needs and their budget. All health plans offered through Washington Health Plan Finder meet strict benefit and quality standards. All the essentials are covered, including visits to the doctor and emergency room, prescriptions, maternity care and preventive care like cancer screenings and immunizations. If an accident or illness strikes, a quality health plan can help protect you from huge medical bills. In addition, no one will be denied coverage because they are sick or have a pre-existing condition. More people than ever before will qualify for financial help to pay for coverage. Depending on how much you earn, you can qualify for a free or low-cost health plan, or be eligible for financial help that can lower the cost of your premiums and copays. KWA is here to help walk you through this process and answer questions that you may have. For additional information, visit WA Health Benefits Exchange's website
KWA is proud to be a partner of the Pierce County Library System, which has just won a 2013 National Medal for Museum and Library Service. Because of the Pierce County Library, 2,400 online job search, resume and interview classes were completed. The library also created a military website to help Joint Base Lewis-McChord families new to the area. For more programs offered, visit www.piercecountylibrary.org
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services has recently issued a caution to all USCIS applicants. A telephone scam has been popping up asking for personal information, including social security numbers, passport numbers and A-numbers. The USCIS never asks for any form of payment or personal information over the phone. Do not give any information over the phone to someone who claims to work with the USCIS. If you receive a call like this, say "No thank you," and hang up immediately. For more information, read here.
