Hopper will be helping attendees understand how to enroll in the new health insurance system based on the annual open enrollment period that runs from Nov. 15 to Feb. 15.

“This class will help you determine if you qualify for a premium and/or coverage subsidy and how to apply for health insurance that offers the best value for you and your family, whether on or off the California Exchange,” Hopper said.

SBCC's Center for Lifelong Learning launched “CLL Presents,” a lecture and special event series, inviting the community to hear from and interact with leading experts about timely, relevant subjects. These events are co-sponsored by CLL community partners and supporters in order to be available for reduced or free admission.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
