  • Genesis Health System has launched a web page to provide answers to some questions, including the big one, "what's in it for me?'' Guaranteed preventive services and guaranteed benefits are two answers to "What's In It For Me?", even for the bronze plans. And, check out the video at the site.
  • There is also an enrollment service line now available.  The number is (563) 421-3675 (ENRL).  If you have questions or want to invite Genesis health insurance navigators to your church, community organization, library, neighborhood block party, call for information.
  • Our email address for information, or to set up community enrollment events, is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
  • Genesis has hired three health insurance navigators funded by grants  from the federal government. The navigators are now going through mandatory federal and state training.  Once they are licensed, they will go out into the community to assist individuals and small businesses in the enrollment process. They will provide unbiased, objective assistance to help individuals find a plan that is right for their health needs and for their financial needs. We hope the navigators will be licensed by the second week of October. We won't be able to have them licensed by Oct. 1.
  • We will be working closely with community organizations, some of which have also received grant funding to assist with enrollment.  We are planning a media event with these partners for Tuesday, Oct. 1, the first day of the enrollment period. Put it on your calendar for Tuesday at 2 p.m.
  • This is a big project with big goals.  Our No. 1 Genesis goal is to improve the health of the region by providing access to primary care physicians to individuals and families who now do not have that access. Especially for individuals with a chronic condition, a relationship with a primary care physician can help prevent serious complications of the condition requiring hospitalization.
We need your help to reach the public about enrollment and to keep the public updated about the 200 or so enrollment events we are planning by the end of the enrollment period on March 31. Call us if we can help with your media needs.
