2013-11-07 · By Editor
On Thursday, November 7, 2013, the Health Department will hold a free health insurance enrollment event from 4:00 to 8:00 pm at the Miller Family Health Education Center, located at 3820 Cherry Avenue in Long Beach. Certified enrollment counselors will provide enrollment assistance with Medi-Cal and Covered California applications.
No appointment is required but interested individuals must bring the appropriate documents in order to complete a health insurance application:
- birth certificate, U.S. passport or resident alien card (green card);
- proof of income such as recent paychecks and 2012 tax forms;
- proof of Los Angeles County residency such as driver’s license, utility or phone bills, rental agreement;
- Social Security cards for everyone in the family applying for health insurance.
The Health Department staff will provide answers to consumer questions about healthcare reform, Medi-Cal and Covered California eligibility, open enrollment periods, and health plan options. Staff will be available to provide language assistance in English, Spanish and Khmer (Cambodian).
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expands the number of individuals and families who qualify for Medi-Cal and through Covered California, many more individuals are eligible for tax subsidies to help purchase health insurance. For more information or questions, call (562) 570-7979.
