Hours for consultations will be Tuesdays, 9:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. and Saturdays, 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the second floor study rooms at the Library.  Sessions are offered on a walk-in basis and by appointment.  To schedule an appointment, call ECHO Community Health Care, Inc. at (812) 436-0211.

Those who want to sign up for coverage the day of their consultation should bring:

  • Social security numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
  • Employer and income information for every member of your household who needs coverage (pay stubs, W-2 forms, or Wage and Tax Statements)
  • Policy numbers for any current health insurance plans covering members of your household
  • Information about any health insurance you or someone in your household is eligible for

For more information about Affordable Care Act consultations with ECHO Community Health Care, Inc., call (812) 436-0211.
