MISSION, TX — On Saturday, November 16th, Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) will host a Health Insurance Community Workshop for residents of Hidalgo County.
The event is free and open 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, as well as receive free health screenings.
“The Affordable Care Act is about allowing Americans to take personal responsibility for the costs of their health care as well as providing 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 Hidalgo County alone, 38.1 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 Mission to raise awareness and educate the public.”
