State Representative Rudy Hobbs, who’s hosting the event, says trained navigators from partnering organizations will be on-hand to walk attendees through picking a plan.
“The President’s Health Care Law has brought much-needed relief to individuals in our state. In order to take advantage of this historic opportunity, it’s important that residents are aware of their new coverage options and the financial assistance available,” said Hobbs. “I encourage anyone who is uninsured or underinsured, and needs quality coverage, to attend the event and get enrolled before the March 31 deadline.”
