La Salud Sucede con la Prevención

Overview

The Health Happens with Prevention (HHP) workgroup is embarking on an ambitious campaign to promote a health care open enrollment season in Boyle Heights. While in prior years Covered California’s open enrollment media campaign may have simply served to remind some Boyle Heights residents of a program for which they were ineligible, starting in 2015, it will serve a different purpose. The HHP workgroup is leveraging existing media outreach and conversations around Covered California’s open enrollment period to spark conversations and enrollment into health care coverage. With programs like My Health LA bringing health care access to those otherwise eligible for other programs, there truly now is a program for everyone.

Policy Campaign

Starting this fall, the HHP workgroup is embarking on an ambitious campaign to promote a health care open enrollment season in Boyle Heights.

While in prior years Covered California’s open enrollment media campaign may have simply served to remind some Boyle Heights residents of a program for which they were ineligible, starting in 2015, it will serve a different purpose.

Programs like My Health LA bringing health care access to those otherwise eligible for other programs.

Finally, the HHP workgroup is working with key institutions in Boyle Heights like schools and churches to bring healthcare enrollment for programs like My Health LA into places of trust in Boyle Heights. Every open enrollment season, Boyle Heights residents will know to check on their health coverage and will know that they only need to reach their local school, church, or community center if they, or anyone they know, needs to enroll.
