Insurance Review


consumers have more choices on health insurance exchange But Doggett said, speaking at a new conference with other public officials earlier this week, getting an ACA plan through the exchange is the “best alternative for many people in Bexar County and the surrounding areas to get access to a family doctor in the midst of a pandemic.” City Councilwoman Ana Sandoval said much the same in Spanish at the news conference, stressing there are free resources available to help navigate enrollment. CentroMed leads a coalition called EnrollSA, which pools funds from local partners to help people enroll in plans. Individuals also can sign up on their own. There are two new insurance carriers on the exchange this time around for a total of five in Bexar County, offering a total of 72 plans. Experts say the difference between health plans could mean hundreds of dollars in savings, so it pays to check out the options. EnrollSA is offering assistance in considering those choices with certified application counselors every day on or by calling 210-977-7997, said Ana Maria Garza Cortez, vice president and chief development officer at CentroMed. Limited in-person services are available by appointment only because of physical distancing requirements. As of Friday, EnrollSA had completed 1,405 appointments, which led to filing 1,140 marketplace applications. So far, 758 of those have enrolled in health plans on the exchange. [Construction] [Cars]

EXCLUSIVE: New Line tonight browse this site temporarily shut down production on the Olivia Wilde -directed film Don’t Worry Darling when a member of the production tested positive for COVID-19. The studio confirmed it happened, something that is an occupational hazard for any film or TV show that is shooting right now. They shut down right away. The film stars Florence Pugh, Harry Styles , Chris Pine , KiKi Layne, Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll with Wilde playing a supporting role. The film has a script by Carey and Shane Van Dyke that was rewritten by Wilde’s Booksmart partner Katie Silberman. Pic was shooting downtown Los Angeles when this happened today. The film has been following strict protocols, and the positive test came up during routine testing. The studio would  not disclose who came up positive, but I am told it is not a member of the principal cast but someone who was in close enough proximity to them that the shutdown was deemed necessary to find out if anyone else on the production has been exposed. No one else has tested positive at this point.
