Local non-for-profit no longer providing Affordable Care Act

The non-for profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) will end its contracted Affordable Care Act Services.

NECAC had been assisting residents in 13 Missouri counties since 2013.

Under the Affordable Care Act, NECAC provided outreach, education and assisted with enrollment in the law.

NECAC officials want Heartland residents to know that there are other options for them to seek help with Affordable Care Act Services.

People who need assistance with ongoing aspects of the Affordable Care Act should log on to or call 1-800-318-2596.
