United Way and CRH teaming up to help with health coverage

The United Way of Bartholomew County and Columbus Regional Health are joining a state program to help more families gain health insurance.

The two groups will be implementing locally the statewide Covering Kids and Families program. Licensed navigators will be offering free assistance navigating health coverage to anyone in Bartholomew County. The navigators will be able to connect families to state and federal health plans they might qualify for. That includes Medicaid, Hoosier Healthwise or the Healthy Indiana Plan.

United Way works to ensure everyone has what they need to reach their full potential, including access to affordable healthcare services.

Ashley LaVanway, Covering Kids and Family manager for United Way says the program is a tool that can be used to get everyone affordable coverage.

You can start signing up for assistance starting on Wednesday. To get signed up you can call 812-418-3573 Monday through Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. or online here: https://www.ckfindiana.org/need-coverage/
