The APS Medicaid Enrollment Project is an exciting new program that began in January of 2014. This project is supervised by Kristine Meurer and Sergio Cianci in the Student, Family and Community Supports Division. The coordinator of the project is Brian Bolding, who works alongside APS Community Support Liaison Eleanor Hernandez. The ultimate goal of this project is to remove barriers from learning so students are ready to learn all day every day.

Each month, there is a healthcare enrollment event at one of our schools. Thus far, the project has held events at: Wilson MS, Kennedy MS, Grant MS, Atrisco Heritage Academy HS, Highland HS and Albuquerque HS.

“So far, we have enrolled over 800 students and their families in Medicaid or in the Health Insurance Exchange. This job is very fulfilling, and every day we are able to get a family covered is another day that I think we are that much closer to higher graduation rates” Brian Bolding, the project coordinator said.

The next healthcare enrollment event will be held at Rio Grande HS on Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014 from 9:00AM – 1:00PM. Anyone in the community can enroll in health insurance at the event. Food and drinks are provided, as well as a safe place for kids to play.
