Wednesday December 2, 2015: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room

Do you have health insurance? Did you know that 70% of people can get health insurance for less than $50 a month? Come learn more about your health insurance options at this event, led by representatives of the Washtenaw Health Initiative.

This session will provide information about health insurance options and will also provide information to refer community members to services that can directly enroll people into the coverage they’re eligible for.

The Washtenaw Health Initiative is a voluntary, county-wide collaboration focused on how to improve access to coordinated care for the uninsured and low-income and Medicaid populations. The effort includes representatives from the University of Michigan Health System, Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, health plans, county government, community services, physicians, and safety net providers. More than 80 organizations and 180 individuals participate.
