Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic hosts insurance education event
GRANGER – Since the Affordable Care Act took effect, 17.6 million previously uninsured Americans now have health care coverage, however, many still remain without coverage.
Open enrollment for health insurance is underway. In an effort to help those that are uninsured and underinsured get the best coverage for their family, Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic (YVFWC) is hosting another “Get Covered” event. Valley residents can get help on Wednesday, December 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Radio KDNA in Granger. The radio station is located at 121 Sunnyside Avenue, Granger, WA 98932.
Certified insurance navigators will be on site to help discover what options are available. The navigators will also be on hand to help answer questions regarding coverage. Whether individuals are applying for insurance for the first time, or reapplying for coverage, we can help. Representatives from Coordinated Care and Community Health Plan of Washington will also be on site to answer questions.
