UMCPP to Assist Individuals and Families Seeking Health Coverage

Nov 7, 2013
University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP) has been designated as a Certified Application Counselor (CAC) organization.

Beginning Monday, November 11, specially trained CACs will be available at UMCPP and other Princeton HealthCare System locations for eligible individuals and families who would like help enrolling in benefit plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

UMCPP's trained CACs will be available through March 31, 2014, the closing date for open enrollment.

The CACs will assist individuals primarily through the Medical Library at UMCPP, 1 Plainsboro Road, Plainsboro. They also will be available at lectures hosted by Princeton HealthCare System to answer questions and explain the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Visit princetonhcs.org/calendar to find upcoming information sessions or call 1-888-897-8979 to schedule an appointment with a counselor. Walk-ins also will be welcome, on a first-come, first-served basis, when CACs are available at the Medical Library. Before you go, please call 1-888-897-8979 to check the schedule.

  • Employer and income information—pay stubs or W-2 forms—for everyone in your household seeking health coverage.
  • Policy numbers of any current health insurance plans covering members of your household.
  • A completed Employer Coverage Tool for every job-based insurance plan for which you or someone in your household is eligible, even if you are not enrolled. Download a copy of the form here or visit HealthCare.gov.
