Health Care Coverage Event Set for Saturday


DETROIT — With less than a month sign up for a health care plan, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network are partnering with the Detroit Regional Chamber for a program to help answer questions on enrollement.

The free health expo will be held Saturday at the Christian Tabernacle Church, 26555 Franklin Rd. in Southfield, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 15, the last day for individuals to enroll in coverage with an April 1 effective date. People enrolling after March 15 will have to wait until May 1 for coverage.

The education and enrollment event is focused on individuals who don’t qualify for Medicaid or Medicare, and small business employers, and will give both the opportunity to learn about health care reform and insurance coverage options from experts on the topic. This free event is open to the public, and will offer kids activities, refreshments, giveaways and personal wellness checks for all attendees.
