Your Family's Health - Open enrollment starts now!

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Family Love In My City has partnered with EnrollSA to bring information on the enrollment and re-enrollment of healthcare coverage in Bexar County that are made available by the Affordable Care Act.

I want to talk a little bit about healthcare today, and I really hope that you read my story. If you have family or friends that need this information, please share it with them. Thank you, in advance!

I remember being a kid going to the same family doctor, Dr. Johnson. I remember getting immunization at community clinics, specifically this one off San Pedro (it must have been some major shots!). But as I got a little older, I remember being there were times when we had insurance and times when we didn't.

My dad owned his own small business and I think sometimes, to him, health insurance seemed unattainable. With 4 kids, my mom was a stay at home mother, but stopped when we were all older. When I was a teenager, she went to work for a school district, and maintained that job, just so we could be insured. But with her parents both getting ill and passing away during that time, there were lapses when we weren't covered.

Sound familiar?

It seems pretty normal in our culture, right? Something about just wanting to survive and get by, makes health insurance feel like a luxury and not something that everyone can obtain.

But everyone has the right to obtain health insurance. This year, I've have partnered with EnrollSA to help share information about the enrollment and re-enrollment period.

Here are some important facts:

  • The enrollment and re-enrollment process begins tomorrow, November 15th. 
  • Re-enrollment ends December 15th. You may want to revisit because there are more plans to choose from, maybe something that is a better fit for you financially.
  • You can be fined $325 or 2% of your income if you don't enroll for 2015. Whichever is GREATER. 

  • Enrollment Events around San Antonio:
     English and Spanish speaking counselors available.
  • Saturday November 15th from 9-4pm at the UTSA Downtown Campus
  • Saturday November 15th from 9-2pm at Palo Alto College
  • Friday November 29th from 10-4pm st Rollings Oak Mall
  • Saturday December 13th from 10-2pm at Judson High School

  • If more information is needed, please check out the EnrollSA website, they are on Facebook too! 

    Remember, we all deserve affordable healthcare. Please check it out and share with those who need.
