ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks looking to sign up for healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act are getting some extra help for the Open enrollment which ends March 31st.

Georgia received a federal grant to hire 20 health navigators to travel around the state and inform folks about ObamaCare.            

Kim Wyche, who covers 20 counties in South Georgia, will be in Dougherty County Friday to answer questions and help those wanting to sign up.

"She's gone through many, many hours of training," said Dougherty County Extension Agent Suzanne Williams.  "She is licensed to be a health navigator.  In fact, by law she's one of the few people in the state that actually can assist people with signing up.  She's just a wealth of knowledge. She knows a lot about it and there's a lot of questions about it."         

The information session begins at 10 o'clock on Friday in the Candy Room at 125 Pine Avenue.    

The meeting will last until 2:00 or until everyone is finished signing up. 

You need an e-mail address and proof of income to apply.      

For more information call 229-436-7216.
