No doubt you’ve been starting to hear about the new Health Insurance Marketplace, a key part of the health care law that will be open for business on October 1st. But you probably still have questions. Like what is the Marketplace, and can you really get health insurance? Well we’ve got answers.
Starting this fall, the Marketplace will help you find health insurance that fits your budget and meets your needs, with less hassle.
No matter where you live, you may buy insurance from private health plans that cover a comprehensive set of benefits, including doctor visits, hospital stays, preventive care, and prescriptions. Plans in the Marketplace must treat you fairly; they can’t deny you coverage because of a pre-existing condition.
With a single application, you can also see if you qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or savings you can use right away to lower your health insurance premiums.
Deckerville Community Hospital has been approved by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to become a Certified Application Counselor Designated Organization. As a CAC organization, our staff will be able to help people understand, apply, and enroll for health coverage through the Marketplace. At the current time there are several DCH employees completing the training to help the community get their questions answered.
If you are interested in the services offered here at DCH, or are looking for help enrolling for coverage through the Marketplace, please call 810-376-7013 to schedule an appointment.

Gerald R. Schell, MD, Neurosurgeon
President, Saginaw Valley Neurosurgery, PLLC
One of the world’s preeminent minimally invasive spine surgeons, Dr. Gerald R. Schell’s roots stem from the Thumb of Michigan.
Dr. Schell attended Olivet College in Olivet, Michigan and later received his Doctor of Medicine degree from Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine before completing a neurosurgical rotation at Syracuse University. Syracuse University later offered him the directorship of its neurosurgical training program, which he declined to continue caring for the needs of Michigan patients.
Currently, Dr. Schell uses advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques for the vast majority of his patients with spinal disc disease. For patients who previously had no hope for pain relief for osteoporotic compression fractures, Dr. Schell performs novel procedures such as the three dimensional CT reconstructive techniques with balloon kyphoplasty.
Dr. Schell performed the first artificial lumbar disc surgery in the state of Michigan, and both he and Dr. Field are currently playing a leading international role in the experimental development of single-level and two-level artificial discs for cervical disk problems. They are also involved with numerous other collaborative scientific endeavors to help advance neurosurgical care. Additionally, Dr. Schell served as the Chief of Staff of St. Mary’s of Michigan hospital in Saginaw until 2009.
Dr. Jerry is a board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in the management of arthritis as well as knee, hip and shoulder replacement. He has been in private practice in Port Huron for more than 20 years.
He received his medical degree from the State University of New York, Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York. He served an intership at Brown University in Rhode Island, before completing a residency in Orthopedics at SUNY Upstate Medical Center, where he was chief resident for a year. He then went on to complete a one year fellowship in adult reconstruction at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
He is certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery, and a member of the American Medical Association, Michigan State Medical Society, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American College of Physician Inventors, Mayo Clinic Fellow Association and SUNY Medical Alumni Association.
