Albuquerque Public Schools is sponsoring a free health care enrollment event in conjunction with UNM Community Engagement Center and New Life Homes, from 10:00 am to 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 28, 2017, at Sundowner Apartments, 6101 Central Ave NE.

APS’ Healthcare Enrollment Events combine health education for families, fun activities for kids and parents, and Insurance enrollment and resources for all. Healthcare enrollment experts will be on hand to enroll families or individuals in Medicare, Medicaid or the Health Insurance Exchange. “Open enrollment” for Federal Health Insurance officially ends on January 31, 2017, so we highly encourage all APS families and staff to attend if you are still uninsured. Medicaid enrollment can be done year round, but to avoid a tax penalty, you should make sure you get health insurance of any kind, as soon as possible. On-site enrollment will be offered at this free event as well as certified health care guides to provide information and assistance in applying for Medicaid or information on insurance through New Mexico’s Health Care Exchange. Attending this event can save families valuable time. At the ISD office you can wait up to 6 hours to get enrolled, at APS events, families can get enrolled in less than an hour.

“Because health-related issues can be barriers to learning, APS is working on ways for students and families to be healthier,” said Brian Bolding, Medicaid enrollment coordinator in the APS Student, Family, and Community Supports Division. “We at APS believe that a healthier student is a more successful student.”

In order to expedite the enrollment individuals should bring: proof of citizenship, immigration status or tribal enrollment, a photo ID, proof of residency, proof of income, and proof of household size. In addition, individuals should bring any current insurance information and/or recent unpaid medical bills. Non-citizens may be eligible as well. For recertification, only new proof of income along with a picture I.D. is required.

The event will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Sundowner Apartments near San Mateo and Central and end at 2:00 p.m. The free event will also include drinks and snacks, activities for children, information about healthy Winter activities, bilingual presentations about healthcare access, and information on healthy lifestyles. Additional parking will be available adjacent to the facility and across the street. For further information call the APS Medicaid Enrollment Office at 855-5261.
