Albuquerque Public Schools is sponsoring a free health care enrollment event from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, Saturday, March 17, 2018, at Kennedy Middle School.  Kennedy Middle School is located at 721 Tomasita St NE (map).

This Medicaid Enrollment Event is free for the whole community, anyone is welcome to attend, and activities include:

  • amazing drone demos for families and kids
  • drinks and snacks
  • door prizes and games
  • flu shots (provided by Walgreens with proof of insurance)
  • Kids Cook demos
  • legal workshops for families
  • free HIV & Hepatitis C testing

Healthcare enrollment experts will be on hand to enroll families or individuals in most insurance plans and 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 income
  • 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.”
