On Saturday, December 7h, the Office of Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) will host a Health Insurance Marketplace Workshop for residents of Starr County. The event is open and free to the public and will provide presentations on the new Health Insurance Marketplaces. Participants will have the opportunity to enroll in the new Health Insurance Marketplace, with assistance provided by local, certified organizations.

“The new health insurance marketplace provides an opportunity for Texans to take personal responsibility for the costs of their health care and gain universal access to quality and affordable health insurance,” said Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28). “The District I represent includes some of the counties that have the highest rate of uninsured Americans in the country – in Starr County alone, 34.6 percent of residents do not have health insurance (source: Center for American Progress). This is why I have partnered with local agencies and organizations to host a Health Insurance Marketplace Community Workshop in Rio Grande City to raise awareness and educate the public.”
