Weekend Events Push Health Care Signups
Programs are being planned across Alabama this weekend to help people sign up for health insurance through the federally operated marketplace before Monday's night deadline. Alabama Arise says enrollment events are being held Saturday at St. Stephens AME Church and the Moorer Public Library in Mobile, as well as at Medical Outreach Ministries in Montgomery. The student-led group Bama Covered is planning an event Sunday afternoon in Railroad Park in Birmingham. Mayor William Bell and U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell will speak, and people will provide assistance to anyone wanting to enroll. Alabama Arise recommends bringing Social Security numbers and birth dates for all household members, income verification for all household members, and current health insurance information.
