Health Insurance Navigators @ Sheridan College Griffith Memorial Building, room 10
Mar 28 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Health Insurance Navigators will be in Sheridan on March 28 at the Wyoming Free Tax Service provided in room 10 of the Griffith Memorial Building at Sheridan College from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced a special enrollment period for individuals and families who did not have health coverage in 2014 and are subject to the fee or “shared responsibility payment” when they file their 2014 taxes.

This special enrollment period will allow those individuals and families who were unaware or didn’t understand the implications of this new requirement to enroll in 2015 health insurance coverage through the FFM.

The special enrollment period began March 15 and ends at 9:59 p.m. on April 30. If a consumer enrolls in coverage before the 15th of the month, coverage will be effective on the first day of the following month.

This year’s tax season is the first time individuals and families will be asked to provide basic information regarding their health coverage on their tax returns. Individuals who could not afford coverage or met other conditions may be eligible to receive an exemption for 2014. To help consumers who did not have insurance last year determine if they qualify for an exemption, CMS also launched a health coverage tax exemption tool today on HealthCare.gov and CuidadodeSalud.gov.

The navigators will be available to assist those having questions or wanting to enroll. People can walk-in or set up an appointment by calling 211.

Instrument petting zoo @ Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library Inner Circle
Mar 28 @ 10:00 am

SHERIDAN — Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library will host an instrument petting zoo in the Inner Circle on March 28 at 10 a.m.

Instrument petting zoos have been offered for several years by orchestras and other entities around the country to introduce children and adults to instruments that may be otherwise inaccessible.

Some instruments can be delicate, expensive and complicated to use, which is intimidating to many would-be child and adult musicians. This event will allow participants to get up close with a variety of instruments to see, hear and touch them and learn how they work.

The program will be led by certified music therapist Michele Folster and musician Dr. Scott Flagg, who will bring several of their personal instruments to the event.

“We’ll be bringing and talking about some familiar instruments and some that you may have heard about but have never actually heard or seen like didgeridoos and Native American flutes,” Folster said. “It will be a fun time with fun instruments for all ages! Come make some noise with us!”

The library is located at 335 W. Alger St.
