APS is sponsoring a free health care enrollment event 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, May 17 at Highland High School, 4700 Coal Ave SE.

On-site enrollment will be offered as well as certified health care guides to provide information and assistance in applying for Medicaid or insurance on New Mexico’s Health Care Exchange.

“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.”

“We are encouraging tribal members to attend this event and bring proof of tribal enrollment,” Bolding said, adding that APS has joined with Native American Professional Parent Resources or NAPPR to encourage Native Americans to attend the event.

In order to expedite the enrollment individuals should bring: proof of citizenship or immigration status, 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.

The also will include free food and drinks, activities for children, and free flu shots. For further information call the APS Medicaid Enrollment Office at 855-5261.
