CONGRESSWOMAN LORETTA SANCHEZ CONTINUES TO “ENROLL OC” BEFORE COVERED CA DEADLINE
Saturday Santa Ana Enrollment Event One of Few Before Deadline
Garden Grove, Calif. – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-46) will continue her effort to “Enroll OC” by hosting an enrollment event this Saturday, March 29, 2014, from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm PST at the Orange County Employees Union Offices, 830 N. Ross St., Santa Ana, CA, 92701.
Congresswoman Sanchez launched “Enroll OC” in February to connect Orange County residents with certified, in person bilingual health insurance enrollment services through Covered California. Over 20 events across Orange County have helped residents who face hurdles to enrollment like language barriers, lack of computer access or complicated financial situations.
Because of phone and internet capacity concerns, Covered California has extended the final deadline to April 15, but only if residents begin an application by Monday, March 31. Adult residents who have not enrolled by April 15 will face a fine of $95 or one percent of their yearly household income, whichever is higher.
