Certified Application Counselor (CAC)


The Health Insurance Marketplace is now open, so eligible individuals and families may enroll in health plans that provide coverage for essential benefits, pre-existing conditions and more.

UMCPP can help.

University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP) has been designated an official Certified Application Counselor (CAC) organization. This means we can help you enroll.

UMCPP’s specially trained Certified Application Counselors will be available starting November 11, 2013 through March 31, 2014 (the closing date for open enrollment).


Learn more about:

  • The Marketplace in your state
  • What Marketplace Insurance covers
  • The costs of health insurance
  • Getting help with your application
  • What you need to know if you have job-based insurance

Enrollment assistance will be provided at a number of locations across Princeton HealthCare System, including:

  • Policy numbers of any current health insurance plans covering members of your household
  • A COMPLETED Employer Coverage Tool for every job-based plan you or someone in your household is eligible for (You will need to fill out this form even for coverage you are eligible for but do not enroll in. You can find it at healthcare.gov)
