By: Luis Torres, LULAC National Director of Policy and Legislation

As a nationally recognized Champion for Coverage by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), LULAC National has played a critical role in addressing the health care needs of the Latino community. With the support of private and public sector partners, LULAC National has hosted health festivals in key states to bring health screenings to thousands of people and provide the community with information on the open enrollment process and health marketplaces.

As the closing deadline for the current enrollment period on January 31st quickly approaches, LULAC National is working to support all health care enrollment activities in Latino communities across the country. Enrollment events are enrollment opportunities in local communities where uninsured individuals can get help to sign up for coverage, explore their options, and/or talk to health experts about health resources in their communities.

Below are some enrollment events occurring in various communities across the country. For additional events happening throughout the month of January, please visit Enroll America’s website to find an enrollment site close to you. Visit: https://www.getcoveredamerica.org/connector/

Remember, you can sign-up for coverage before January 31st! Financial assistance is available to families who qualify. Enroll today!
