Join the NAACP, 211 Riverside County and the Riverside County Black Chamber of Commerce this Saturday at the 14th Annual Juneteenth Celebration in Riverside where they will be educating the community about Covered California, the state’s health insurance marketplace.
The educators will be at Bordwell Park from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. to inform residents about health care plans through Covered California, Special Enrollment and Medi-Cal. By the end of March, 1.4 million people had selected a Covered California health insurance plan, including 40,377 in Riverside County.
Although open enrollment has ended, consumers who experience a qualifying life event can still enroll in a health insurance plan through Covered California. Qualifying life events include losing health coverage through a job, getting married or entering into a domestic partnership, having or adopting a child, changing where a person permanently lives or gaining citizenship.
