Join Us To Learn About Two New Programs for California Residents -- The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan and the Consumer Assistance Program
Two new federal programs—the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan and the Consumer Assistance Program—have been rolled out over the past year across the nation. Both programs are aimed at helping California residents.
The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan is a health coverage option for people who have been locked out of the health insurance market because of a pre-existing condition. It provides people with a pre-existing condition the same coverage that a healthy person receives, and at the same price! The Consumer Assistance Program offers resources to States and Territories to educate consumers about their health coverage options and ensure their access to accurate information.
Please join us for a meeting to learn more about both of these exciting new programs! Attached is a flyer with information about the event to post or forward to your network.
We appreciate your time and participation, and hope you will RSVP to Eric Alborg at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (415) 437-8500.
