Get Covered DNATL Health Fair

posted Feb 26, 2014, 4:50 PM by BHC Staff
2014 is the beginning of a new year and new changes in California. The biggest change is rollout of Covered California. Obamacare, also know as the Affordable Care Act, was singed into law in 2010 by President Obama creating state-based health insurance exchanges. California chose early on to operate its own exchange, now known as “Covered California.”

To help Del Norte and the adjacent tribal lands learn more and become enrolled, the 1st “Get Covered DNATL Health Fair will be happening Saturday, March 8 from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds.

Our health care system is changing and this health fair is meant to help you and your family navigate the new benefits and enrollment opportunities. Come and get your health care and benefits questions answered. Get free health screenings and visit community agencies and see the resources that are available to you and your family. There will be snacks, children’s activities, entertainment and opportunities to receive free gas & grocery gift cards.

Del Norte Health Care District, United Indian Health Service, Del Norte Department of Health and Human Services, California Rural Indian Health Board, Yurok Tribe, Open Door Community Clinic, Sutter Coast Hospital, Building Healthy Communities and The California Endowment, are working together to as part of the “Get Covered” campaign to help all of Del Norte and the adjacent tribal lands learn more about the benefits of Covered California.

We are proud to work with partners across the state who work every day to reach out, educate and enroll Californians in quality, affordable health care coverage.

The California exchange's vision is to improve the health of all Californians by assuring their access to affordable, high quality care.

The mission is to increase the number of insured Californians, improve health care quality, lower costs, and reduce health disparities through an innovative, competitive marketplace that empowers consumers to choose the health plan and providers that give them the best value.
