Energy and Utilities

How do I deal with a problem with my electricity or natural gas provider?

Our resources page includes contact information for most utility providers, and you can also contact our office for guidance on specific issues. Our Consumer Energy Program advocates on behalf of residential and small business customers in energy-related matters before Georgia’s Public Service Commission (PSC) and at the state capitol.

Healthcare

How can I sign up to get healthcare?

Circumstances are different for each individual, so the answer to this question will vary from person to person. Georgia Watch works to educate consumers about the various healthcare resources currently available to them, such as the health insurance marketplace created by the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, PeachCare, Medicare, charitable care clinics and hospital financial assistance programs. Learn more on our Healthcare Enrollment page, or contact our office directly for information specific to your needs and circumstances.

Financial Protection

How can I learn more about ways to save money?

Georgia Watch offers several educational workshops that assist Georgians with consumer protections and managing personal finances more effectively. Programs are offered in financial literacy, credit counseling, and other aspects of personal finance. These programs offer tools that help consumers build wealth, grow assets, and avoid predatory practices such as payday lending. Trey Cason is the Manager of Education and Empowerment for Georgia Watch, and he presents our workshops all over the state. Contact Trey to learn more or to schedule a workshop.
