Adams County Grassroots for Healthcare is partnering with Servicios de La Raza and Organizing for Action to host two local meetings, the first on Feb. 20 at Westminster United Methodist Church in Westminster and the second on Feb. 24 at Community Reach Center in Northglenn. Both presentations will be 4-7 p.m. and will also discuss Connect for Health Colorado, Colorado’s new online marketplace where individuals and families who don’t have insurance and small businesses can shop and compare costs and benefits of a number of different insurers and choose the best plans for them.
Leading the presentations is Mirna Castro with Coalition for Culturally Appropriate Response and Enrollment Services. She is very familiar with the enrollment process and will help guide those who need some assistance.
She will also provide an in-depth look at how the Affordable Care Act will affect Adams County residents, as well as give information on the Medicaid expansion.
“I’ve done many presentations already in the metro area, and so far the feedback has been positive,” she said.
“People are leaving with more clarification in regards to where their household stands in terms of health insurance. And that’s what these presentations are for, to help people make the best choice for themselves or their families.”
Castro said anyone is welcome to come to the presentations, even people who currently have health insurance. She said it’s a good opportunity for people to compare their current coverage with other insurers on Connect for Health Colorado. And for people who are prepared to enroll, health coverage guides with laptops will be on hand to help people navigate healthcare sites and sign up for coverage.
“Many people are still confused when it comes to the Affordable Care Act. They don’t realize that they have to use the Connect for Health Colorado site to get signed up for coverage,” Castro said. “That’s what we are here for- to help people understand the process and figure out what coverage is best for them.”
The presentations will be in both English and Spanish and light refreshments will be provided.
