RIO LINDA HIGH SCHOOL HOSTS HEALTH CARE ENROLLMENT EVENT BEFORE APRIL 30 DEADLINE

Ahead of the April 30, 2015 Covered California special enrollment deadline, Rio Linda High School is teaming up with The Children’s Partnership’s ALL IN For Health Campaign to host a health coverage information and enrollment event for families. This event is part of a larger statewide coordinated effort in schools, early learning centers, and after-school sites across the state to help inform eligible families about health coverage opportunities through Covered California and Medi-Cal and connect them to coverage.

English- and Spanish-speaking representatives from Covered California and private health insurance plans will be available to help families and individuals sign up for health coverage. Information about health care options for undocumented and mixed-status families will also be available. The event is free and open to the public.

Covered California has offered a time-limited opportunity until April 30, 2015 to enroll for those who did not realize there was a tax penalty in 2014 or learned they may face a penalty in 2015. Medi-Cal enrollment is available year-round.
