APS "Medicaid Matters" Back to School Health Fair

Want to see if you qualify for reduced-cost or free healthcare, or need extra support? Everyone is welcome to our upcoming APS Medicaid Enrollment Event - "Medicaid Matters!" Just in time for the start of the new school year. Featuring fast on-site Medicaid enrollment and other supports for those in need.

APS Medicaid Enrollment Event flyer.

 The free community event will include:

  • On-site Medicaid enrollment (bilingual staff available)
  • Information about Medicare and other supports (TANF, SNAP and LIHEAP)
  • Ongoing presentations on self-enrollment in Medicaid 
  • Light snacks and refreshments
  • Plus much, much more!

Join us during this free event which will be held at APS City Center (Alice & Bruce King Educational Complex), in the Rio Grande Conference Room (1st floor) from 8 am to 4 pm on Tuesday, September 6, 2019. APS City Center is located at 6400 Uptown Blvd NE (map).

Presbyterian, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Western Sky Community Care will also be on site, along with local healthcare providers and organizations, to answer questions and provide support to families and staff. A Medicare specialist will also be available to help those with questions regarding Medicare options.

Healthcare enrollment experts will be on site to help enroll families or individuals in Medicaid, answer questions and provide emergency cards to both adults and kids (some conditions apply). At the ISD office it may take several hours to get enrolled; at APS events, families can get enrolled in less than an hour. We highly encourage all APS families and staff to attend if you are still uninsured and/or struggling financially. Medicaid can also be used as a secondary insurance.

To expedite the enrollment, please bring...

  • proof of citizenship
  • immigration status or tribal enrollment
  • a photo ID
  • proof of residency
  • proof of all household income, including benefits (for past month)
  • 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.

“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.”
