Fresno health fair to help families get coverage: March 22

SJ-HealthFair-20131019-residents
March 31 is the last day to sign up for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act or face fines. More than one million Californians have successfully enrolled into health plans through Covered California. SEIU Local 521 and our partners plan to boost that number at a March 22 Community Health Fair in Fresno.

WHEN: Saturday, March 22, 9:00a.m. — 2:00 p.m.
WHERE: The Big Fresno Fairgrounds, Gem and Minerals Building
1121 South Chance Ave., Fresno, CA 93702 (map)

A proud participant of Covered California’s Outreach and Education Grant Program, our Certified Educators have already reached nearly 125,000 people who are likely eligible for financial assistance through Covered California.

Attendees at the Fresno fair will receive free health services, education about high quality, low cost plans available through Covered California, and private counseling for enrollment into Covered California, Medi-Cal and CalFresh. In addition, representatives from Telemundo will provide free giveaways and representatives from WE Connect will help set up appointments for free tax preparation services.
