Primghar, Iowa — Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is again helping people figure out their options in regard to health insurance.

We had a chance to talk with Family Management Specialist Jan Monahan, who says this year, under the Affordable Care Act, everyone must enroll in a health plan, or face a tax. She says she’s encountered people in several situations.

She says they are offering several workshops in the coming weeks, with three of them nearby.

She says they won’t tell you what option to choose, but hopefully the information they provide will steer you in the right direction.

Again, the nearby workshops, called “Smart Choice” seminars, will be at the Sibley Public Library Friday, January 16th; February 2nd at the ISU Extension and Outreach office in Primghar; and at the Spirit Lake Public Library on January 29th.
