If you're looking to add or change your healthcare coverage, this is the time to do it. It's open enrollment season, and PACE, Inc., is looking to help area residents navigate through the process of getting the best coverage at the best price.

Bruce Morell, the executive director of PACE, tells WBSM News there are still glaring problems with health insurance in the United States. "Folks who need it the most, who have the most pressing health needs, are the least likely to have health insurance because they either have pre-existing conditions or haven't had insurance in the past. And they're more expensive to insure."

PACE is hosting an open enrollment event at their headquarters at 166 William Street in New Bedford Tuesday from 9am to 1:30pm. The Southcoast Health Van will also be onhand to give free vaccines and screenings.
