Event Round-Up: South Phoenix Enrollment Fair

February 18, 2014

On the weekend of February 15th, we partnered with our colleagues from Planned Parenthood and Cover Arizona to host an Enrollment Fair targeted to the Latino community in Phoenix to help them #GetCovered. The event was a success, as over 80 people came through the doors to look at their options for health coverage, whether it was through the Health Insurance Marketplace or Arizona’s Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS, or Medicaid).

You can also get an estimate of the financial help you may qualify for here.

Everyone who attended had unique circumstances: whether they were cancer survivors, needed ongoing care or just wanted to be prepared for any health crisis, they knew getting coverage was a priority.

Florenz Got Covered

Florenz was without coverage for three months, following a job change. After completing the online application through healthcare.gov, he was able to find a plan for $88.45 a month. Florenz says he wanted coverage because he has health issues that require ongoing treatment and paying out of pocket is not an option.

 

Sharon Got Covered

Sharon’s health plan will expire soon, so she came to the Enrollment Fair event to shop for a new policy. Having raised five children of her own, she has never been without coverage. Sharon says it’s important to #GetCovered because so many unpredictable things – such as a broken arm or leg – can happen that could financially overextend so many families.

Concepcion Got Covered

It was Concepcion’s first time getting health insurance. She was happy to get a plan that will cover doctor visits. While she has been healthy, she wants her family to be covered in the event they need medical care in the future.

 

 

 

It was a pleasure to assist the community in this effort and an honor to help people #GetCovered.

Resumen del Evento: Feria de Inscripcion en Phoenix del Sur

El fin de semana del 15 de febrero, nos asociamos con nuestros colegas de Planned Parenthood y de Cover Arizona para organizar una feria de inscripción dirigida a la comunidad latina en Phoenix para ayudarlos conseguir seguros medicos. El evento tuvo éxito, ya que cerca de 80 personas vinieron a través de las puertas para ver sus opciones de cobertura de salud, ya sea a través del mercado de Seguros de Salud o Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS o Medicaid).

Todos los que asistieron tenía circunstancias únicas: si eran los sobrevivientes de cáncer, cuidado continuo necesario o sólo quería estar preparado para cualquier crisis de salud, sabían obtener cobertura de una prioridad.

Florenz Got Covered

Florenz no tuvo cobertura durante tres meses, a raíz de un cambio de trabajo. Después de completar la solicitud a través cuidadodesalud.gov, fue capaz de encontrar un plan de $88.45 al mes. Florenz dice que quería la cobertura porque tiene problemas de salud que requieren tratamiento continuo, y pagar de su bolsillo no es una opción.

 

Sharon Got Covered

El plan de salud de Sharon expirará pronto, así que ella llegó al Feria de Inscripción para hacer compras para una nueva póliza. Después de haber criado a cinco hijos propios, ella nunca ha estado sin cobertura. Sharon dice que seguros médicos son importante porque muchas cosas imprevisibles – como un brazo o una pierna rota – puede suceder que podría extenderse demasiado financieramente tantas familias.

Concepcion Got Covered

Concepcion #GotCovered

Era la primera vez de Concepción obtener seguro de salud. Ella estaba feliz de conseguir un plan que cubra las visitas al médico. Mientras que ella ha estado sana, ella quiere que su familia sea cubierta en caso que necesite asistencia médica en el futuro.

Ha sido un placer asistir a la comunidad en este esfuerzo y un honor para ayudar a la gente conseguir seguros médicos.
