Albuquerque Public Schools is sponsoring a free health care enrollment event 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, November 15, in the administration building at Washington Middle School, 1101 Park Ave SW.

November 15th is the start of “open enrollment” for Federal Health Insurance for all, so we encourage not only APS families to attend but the entire community. On-site enrollment will be offered 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.

“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.

The event also will include free food and drinks, activities for children, and presentations on healthy lifestyles.  At this event, hourly drawings for prizes will be given to families who fully enroll (while supplies last). For further information call the APS Medicaid Enrollment Office at 855-5261.
