Warm for the Winter
Dec 1 @ 3:00 pm

Like many other Events during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Warm for Winter looks different this year.   But, that could be a good thing.   Instead of two days in October as was done last year, the Prescott Church of the Nazarene, 2110 Willow Creek Road, will hold Warm for Winter each Tuesday afternoon, from Noon to 3:00 pm, by appointment only, from Tuesday, October 20 through Tuesday, January 26, 2021 with breaks for Thanksgiving  and Christmas/New Year’s Holidays.

To protect those in need and volunteers, health and safety guidelines will be implemented.  Therefore, low income, homeless and needy individuals and families will be required to make an appointment at the Church (928-445-1136), wear a mask (adults and children), and bring proper identification to ensure residency in Yavapai County.   Examples of identification accepted are:  school identification, vaccination record, local library card, state insurance card, state identification card, passport, driver’s license, utility bill.

The need is there, even if the Event isn’t the same.  Providing hats, coats/jackets, scarves, gloves and blankets for low income families, the homeless and needy in Yavapai County has been a staple in this community for some time.   Prescott Church of the Nazarene and its H.O.P.E. Ministries continues this tradition.   For more information, contact Pastor Dora Carter, Director, H.O.P.E. Ministries at 928-445-1136.

Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment Assistance at Camp Verde Community Library
Dec 2 @ 12:00 pm

The health insurance landscape can be confusing, but free, local in-person help is available at Camp Verde Community Library. The library is here to help you learn about and enroll in health insurance coverage plans. Thanks to a Libraries Connecting You to Coverage grant from the Public Library Association, specific staff have received the training and access to certify the library as a Counselor Designated Organization with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Open enrollment on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces starts November 1 and ends December 15. This is the time for consumers to examine the deals found on the marketplace, to save money and better meet their health care needs. In fact, consumers who went on HealthCare.gov, compared their plan options, and selected the plan that best fit their health and financial needs ended up paying 38 percent less per month on average in 2019 than the consumers whose plans were automatically renewed.

Top 5 Things to Know about Open Enrollment

  1. What: Comprehensive coverage at an affordable price. HealthCare.Gov plans must include key benefits like mental health care, maternity care, prescription drug coverage, and hospitalization services. In addition to good coverage, most marketplace shoppers will qualify for a discount based on their income. Last year, more than 8 in 10 shoppers could get a plan for less than $100/month.
  2. When: Open Enrollment runs November 1 – December 15, 2020. In-person assistance at the library is available Wednesday, November 4 – Saturday, December 12, 2020 on Wednesdays from 9:30a-noon, Thursdays from 1:30p-4:00p, and Saturdays from 1:00p-4:30p.
  3. Where: Call (928)-554-8384 to make an appointment at Camp Verde Community Library or go to HealthCare.Gov and click on Find Local Help. HealthCare.Gov can only sell Affordable Care Act plans.
  4. How: Community members can enroll online, over the phone, or in-person. Log on to the official ACA marketplace at https://www.healthcare.gov/, or https://www.cuidadodesalud.gov/es/. Call the marketplace call center at 1-800-318-2596 or visit https://widget.getcoveredamerica.org/ to find local help and make an appointment.
  5. Why: Peace of mind. Financial security. Access to comprehensive care. There are so many reasons to sign up for affordable and comprehensive coverage.

In Arizona, 36% of current marketplace consumers will have plans available for 2020 that cost less than $10 per month after tax credits. More than 8 of ten marketplace enrollees in Arizona received premium tax credits to help them pay for their 2019 coverage. In addition, over 40% of Arizona marketplace enrollees qualified for cost-sharing reductions, which lowered their out-of-pocket costs for health care services.

The number of insurance plans people can choose in the marketplace in Arizona increased from an average of 18 plans in 2019 to an average of 33 plans for 2020. And even for the minority of marketplace consumers who don’t qualify for tax credits, it’s worth shopping around for the plan that is best for you.

Consumers enrolling in a plan on HealthCare.gov, known as a Qualified Health Plan or QHP, are guaranteed to receive comprehensive coverage, with no pre-existing condition exclusions or markups. In addition to covering essential health benefits (including prescription drugs, mental health treatment, maternity care, among other health care services), consumers enrolled in a QHP also receive free preventive care services, such as annual checkups and immunizations.

Consumers should avoid insurance plans offered outside of HealthCare.gov that seem too good to be true. Unfortunately, a bevy of “junk insurance” products will be available due to loosening of regulations, and they pose huge financial risks to consumers. These products aren’t required to comply with ACA regulations, which means  they can deny coverage to consumers with pre-existing conditions, charge consumers more based on their gender, reject claims altogether for health care services related to a pre-existing condition, and impose annual coverage limits.

Prescott Farmers Market – Saturdays @ YRMC Overflow Lot,
Dec 5 @ 12:00 pm

When: Every Saturday through April 24, 2021, 10:00AM-1:00PM (NO MARKET 11/28 and 12/26)

Description: Prescott Farmers Market is a year-round market and is now observing winter hours! There is still a variety of local food to enjoy even in the winter months. Customers can find hardy green, potatoes, squash, grass-fed beef, locally raised poultry, baked goods, coffee, and other prepared foods and goods. All markets run by PFM are producer-only farmers markets, meaning every item sold is either grown or produced by the seller here in Arizona. The majority of goods come from within a 30-mile radius of Prescott, though some vendors do travel from other parts of Yavapai County and Maricopa County.

Due to the continued risk associated with COVID-19, PFM has implemented safety measures to help protect the health of customers and vendors, including hand-washing stations and booths spaced to allow for physical distancing. PFM requires its staff and vendors to wear face coverings and requests that customers to do so as well. As always, no pets except service animals are allowed in the market.

At all market locations, customers can swipe their SNAP/EBT, debit or credit cards to receive tokens at the information booth. Double Up Food Bucks are unlimited for the time being. This means that households can double any amount of SNAP benefits when purchasing fresh vegetables and fruits at PFM markets. All vendors accept cash.
As a vital part of the economy, the mission of PFM is to support and expand local agriculture, cultivate a healthy community and increase access to affordable local food.
