Sacramento Covered, a local nonprofit organization, is expanding its health coverage outreach and education services into El Dorado County with a Covered California Workshop, focusing on one-on-one counseling and enrollment assistance.

Scheduled to take place at the El Dorado County Library Main branch in Placerville, the workshop will provide a space where individuals and families can get answers to questions about Covered California, the state’s new health insurance exchange, before open enrollment ends, and learn if they qualify for financial assistance or newly expanded Medi-Cal coverage. They will also be able to connect to Certified Enrollment Counselors to enroll that day (space permitting) or schedule an enrollment appointment, as well as connect to other county resources and local organizations committed to improving the health of El Dorado County Residents.

“With the implementation of health reform, Californians now have access to quality, affordable health coverage options,” said Kelly Bennett-Wofford, executive director of Sacramento Covered, “but time is of the essence due to the open enrollment period that ends this month,” she added.

The free Educational Health Care Workshop & Enrollment Assistance event will be held from 12 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26 at the El Dorado County Library-Main Placerville Branch (345 Fair Lane, Placerville, CA 95667).

Individuals and families are invited to stop by anytime from 12 to 7 p.m. (regular library hours). We will be in the meeting room from 12 to 5 p.m. and the lobby from 5 to 7 p.m. For information call 530-488-0836 or e-mail mwishart@sacramentocovered.org. To discuss your options directly with a Covered California representative, call 1-800-300-1506 or visit online at CoveredCA.com.

With the support of grants from Covered California and the Sierra Health Foundation, Sacramento Covered is actively boosting its outreach and education efforts in Sacramento, El Dorado, Sutter, Yuba and Placer counties.

California continues to lead the nation in health coverage enrollment, accounting for more than a quarter of health care sign-ups. In 2013, Sacramento Covered enrolled 4,699 individuals and families in health and nutrition programs in the greater Sacramento area. Dedicated to educating, assisting and enrolling individuals and families in health insurance and other public benefit programs, Sacramento Covered has coordinated health coverage outreach, enrollment and education services since 1998.
