Independence Blue Cross reminds consumers about March 31 enrollment deadline with 16 Events

Enrollment and education sessions planned throughout the region

Philadelphia, PA - March 14, 2014 - At Independence Blue Cross (IBC), we believe consumer education and engagement around health care reform and the looming March 31 enrollment deadline is essential. That’s why we are traveling to community events throughout the region to help consumers understand and enroll in the best health plan options to suit their individual needs. Through our knowledgeable IBC representatives and sales agents, as well as the Independence Express, our mobile education and enrollment center, we are committed to guiding consumers through the enrollment process.

WHAT: IBC’s mobile education center, Independence Express:

  • Web-capable, ADA compliant truck: outfitted with laptops and iPads — and fully staffed with knowledgeable health care reform experts.
  • The Independence IQ game show: designed to test consumers’ knowledge about the Affordable Care Act, while providing answers in a fun and entertaining format. Complete with participant prizes and a game show host!
