"Cover Yuma County!"

Nov. 6th, 2014

Cover Yuma County!
Health Insurance Marketplace
Medicaid Expansion (AHCCCS)

“Community organizations across Yuma County are uniting to host events on November 15, the first day of open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace, to assist the community in getting health coverage.”

Sunset Community Health Center build on lessons learned from last year and we are excited for this second open enrollment period for the Health Insurance Marketplace which begins November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015. We are prepared to facilitate enrollment process for all those individuals who are “Lawfully Present” in the United States and seek options to obtain affordable health coverage which will available as soon as January 01, 2015.

We are committed to help “Yuma County Get Covered” and stay covered with in-person assistance. From our experience we know first-hand how in-person assisters had an impact on so many lives and were responsible for helping thousands of consumers in this community apply for coverage in Marketplace plans, Medicaid (AHCCCS) during the first open enrollment period. For this reason at our enrollment events trained Navigators, Certified Application Counselors, and Health-E-Arizona Plus Assistors will guide individuals, and families through this process.

This is an opportunity were in-person assisters will provide unbiased information to consumers about the Marketplace, public programs, and how to access and use their new health coverage. Also, information on financial subsidies such as tax credits to offset the costs of insurance will be offered during our events. For so many individuals and families, this will mean the end to the fear that one accident or one illness could send them into a lifetime of debt.

We encourage the public including young adults to attend these events to receive information about the importance of health insurance because accidents and illnesses do happen, and the benefit of insurance far outweighs the potential risk of not having insurance. For the older population, the message is that they can buy insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace regardless of any pre-existing condition.

In addition, Sunset continues to promote awareness to low income families and individuals that are below 133% Federal Poverty Level (FPL) and many others, such as Childless Adults that can restore coverage under the Medicaid Expansion.

We are proud to be part of this historic movement were we will be providing greater access to affordable health care. Sunset Community Health Center enrollment events will be held as follow and will be offered both in English and Spanish:
