Benefits and Enrollment

Navigating the federal health care policies may be challenging for previously uninsured individuals. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), passed in 2010, requires that every individual meet the Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) through Marketplace plans, job-based plans, Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP. Those who remain uninsured will face a penalty proportional to income. To avoid paying these penalties and missing opportunities on enrolling in federally-funded healthcare plans, we offer services to understand eligibility and enrollment. 

Since 2013, PAVHC has been an outreach partner with Montgomery County to provide health literacy education for low-income individuals. We also assist seniors in signing up for benefits through the BEC program. To determine if you're eligible for health insurance, schedule an appointment with our Benefits and Enrollment staff to help you navigate the complicated enrollment process. Learn more about how you can get coverage for doctor visits, medication, and treatment. 

To find out if you're eligible for our services, please see the eligibility requirements.

Most of our services are free; we welcome anyone who volunteers or donates so Pan Asian can continue to help people who need them.
