Saturday, March 22, 2014 SELACO WDB collaborated with Assemblywomen Cristina Garcia to assist our local residents to register for Covered California Health Insurance Program.
There was a great turnout at the event; Over 250+ people were able to apply to get health insurance coverage. Event hours were from 9:00am – 6:00pm and from start to finish Covered California Agents were busy registering people for Health Insurance.
Assemblywomen Cristina Garcia stopped by the event and talked to the Covered California Agents, local residents, and staff. A representative of Congresswomen Linda Sanchez was also in attendance. There were a total of 25 agents, 15 educators and 8 SELACO WDB staff present at the event.
Many Los Angeles County Residents were thankful for helping them get Health Insurance. One local resident Abraham Sandoval from Bell, CA told one of the Agents that due to this event he is now saved, because he had no idea how to go about getting Health Insurance.
Overall, this event was a great success and very helpful in getting our local residents health insurance before the deadline.
