Anyone without health insurance is invited to attend as well as those who are interested in learning more about options available to them through the exchange. However anyone Medicare or Medicaid beneficiaries are not required to enroll.

“This is for everybody else who doesn’t have access to either employer sponsored health insurance or has been unable to get in the individual market,” said Ray Hurd, Regional Administrator with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Though the deadline to enroll is March 31st, as of February first in New Jersey one hundred and forty eight thousand people had signed up for qualified health plans out of roughly nine hundred thousand that were estimated to be eligible.
