Natomas Unified School District has partnered up with campaigns such as ALL IN, health care for all families, Covered California, and Get Covered to promote the awareness of obtaining health care for those who do not have it.

“Ahead of the February 15, 2015 Covered California open enrollment deadline, The Children’s Partnership’s ALL IN For Health Campaign, Natomas Unified School District, and Covered California is teaming up to host a health coverage information and enrollment event for families.  The aim is to inform eligible families about health coverage opportunities through Covered California and Medi-Cal and connect them to coverage. After a successful enrollment event last year, Natomas Unified School District is again welcoming the entire community to learn about and connect to their health coverage options with on-site certified enrollment counselors,” Jessica Gelzer, Senior Communications Associate from the Children’s Partnership, says.

The Health Care Enrollment Event will be addressing issues such as Obamacare and Medi-Cal and heath coverage for undocumented and mixed-status families. Part-time and temporary employees without health coverage and individuals who do not have insurance are encouraged to attend. However, those who do not have insurance may have to pay a fee of $325 for each adult and $162.50 for each child.

Attendees must bring certain identification for the enrollment. Identification such as social security number and date of birth for each family, CA ID or driver’s license, proof of current income, address and proof being a legal resident.
