The Diaz family (l to r: David, Ariana, Cristina, Miguel) signed up for healthcare under Obamacare’s Medi-Cal expansion.

“When someone in my family gets sick, we rush to Mexico to get treatment and medication because it’s too expensive here. But now that we qualify for healthcare, all of us signed up today and we’ll be able to get treatment here in our community.”

“I don’t want to worry about how my little brother will get care if he’s sick. So I brought my brother and my mom to sign up for healthcare today. It feels good to have people here to walk us through the whole process of getting covered.”

Boyle Heights Enrollment Event_Miguel Helguera_300w“Right now my insurance costs $2,100 per month—and that doesn’t even include copays and prescription costs. But last week my cousins got enrolled for affordable coverage here and told me about it, so now I’m signing up. I’m letting other people in my neighborhood know because everyone should have the care they need and can afford.”
