Health care will be more available for students

Low income and middle class
college students between the ages 18 and 26 who are living
away from their parent’s home, must realize that health care is not a
cost they can overlook.

Yes, college
students are considered a low risk for most medical issues, but accidents do

A trip to the emergency room
for something as simple as a sprain, without medical coverage can financially
stifle you from returning to school. A
two to three day stay in a hospital could literally have you moving back into
your parent’s house.

With these inflated medical
costs today, Covered California will begin on Jan. 1 2014, and will make healthcare
insurance available even to the poorest of students.

For information on Covered
California, you can call 800-300-1506.

You can also obtain
information on Covered CA at the Pinole Library at
2935 Pinole Valley Rd., Pinole, Calif. on Nov. 26 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the drop-in table.

This is something you should
not miss; tell your friends.
