Open enrollment in the 2020 Health Insurance Marketplace runs through Dec. 15 and the Galveston County Health District is offering free application assistance from certified counselors for potential enrollees.

The Affordable Care Act-enabled marketplace, also referred to as the National Health Insurance Exchange, is available to anyone not insured through a work plan, by Medicaid or Medicare or any other government program.
