Affordable Care Act (ACA) health insurance enrollment begins Oct. 1 and the City of Tempe is ready to help make the process easier.
“This is a completely new concept and program for everyone and we know that people will likely need access to information about the program as well as assistance completing the enrollment process,” Barbara Roberts, Library and Cultural Services Director said. “Our library staff is prepared and ready to provide that service for the public.”
The Tempe Public Library has resources for those who need to sign up for coverage.

Additionally, staff will be available to assist those who may need help with basic computer skills in order to complete the online enrollment forms.
• Affordable Care Act navigators will offer basic informational classes and help with enrollments at the Tempe Public Library. Times for this help will be posted on the City of Tempe event calendar
