Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic Hosts Health Insurance Education Event in Granger

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - Navigating the health care system can be very confusing. So the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic and Radio KDNA have partnered to put on an insurance education event today. It's happening at Radio KDNA located at 121 Sunnyside Ave. in Granger from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Right now, we're in open enrollment season and if you sign up by December 15th, your health insurance plan will go into effect January 1st. 

Certified staff will be on site to help people apply for insurance for the first time or to re-apply for coverage 

Jessica Johnson from the YVFWC tells us this is a good chance for people to explore their options. 

"Would it be more affordable for me to get health insurance through the state or is it better for me to get health insurance through my spouse? Or if a family has children that are on a plan, they may actually qualify to have those children on health insurance through the state and it may be more affordable for them," said Johnson. 

There will be bilingual reps on site and you don't have to be a client of YVFWC to attend.
