There are at least two really wonderful things happening in the month of November – Open Enrollment begins & PRC starts a Blog!! I know, I know, you’re probably just as surprised as I am, but, with so much good news to share, we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves.
Starting November 15, 2014 through February 15, 2015, individuals may enroll online for health insurance through Covered California. While this open enrollment period presents a fantastic opportunity to gain access to health insurance, many individuals may feel overwhelmed by the enrollment process and need a little extra assistance. Positive Resource Center (PRC) is here to help.
Starting in November, PRC will open its computer lab to San Francisco residents who are HIV-positive for online health insurance enrollment from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday through Friday. During these hours, health access counselors will be available to provide brief consultative services to answer questions about insurance options as well as premium and drug assistance programs.
The enrollment lab is being made available through PRC’s new Equal Access to Health Care Program (EAHP), which aims to identify and overcoming barriers to health access for San Francisco’s HIV-positive community.
Don’t wait—the time is now to take charge of your health. Make sure to enroll in health insurance today!
