(Washington, DC, March 19th, 2014) – March 31st is the deadline for health coverage enrollment in qualified health plans, and La Clínica del Pueblo is increasing efforts to help our community sign up for the new healthcare law known as the Affordable Care Act – ACA. The deadline is fast approaching and La Clínica invites DC residents to an enrollment marathon on March 22nd from 9am to 4pm at La Clínica del Pueblo.
Bilingual In Person Assisters (IPAs) or navigators will be available to explain the benefits of the ACA and to help community members complete their application for health coverage. Additional outreach is taking place through our promotores de salud (health promoters) who will be engaging with the community 72 hours prior to the event.
To guarantee successful enrollments, La Clínica asks all applicants to bring:
- Social security number
- Recent taxes
- Proof of immigration status, such as permanent resident card (green card), visa, TPS, passport, etc.

During the event, Zumba and cooking classes will be offered and childcare will be available on site. Do not wait until the last minute. Under the ACA, residents are required to enroll in health coverage by March 31st or pay a penalty.
