Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM) will hold an Affordable Care Act (ACA) registration event on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school’s Medical Sciences Building, 525 Pine Street in Scranton. Any community member in the greater Scranton area who desires assistance in securing health insurance for themselves and their families is invited to attend.

Attendees should bring their Social Security number or document information for immigrants with satisfactory status; employer and income information for everyone in the family; and federal tax information.
