Health Insurance Event Saturday at Whittier Elementary

Event runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes giveaways, children’s activities

APS is sponsoring a free health care enrollment event 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 24, at Whittier Elementary, 1110 Quincy St. S.E.

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.”

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 event also will include free food and drinks, activities for children, and drawings for door prizes every hour. For more information, call the APS Medicaid Enrollment Office at 855-5261.
