    Does your family need low-cost health coverage?

    Beginning in 2014, most people are required to have health coverage. If they don’t, they may have to pay a fee. MCAS has partnered with Covering Kids & Families (CKF) of LaPorte to ensure that 100% of MCAS families receive health insurance coverage. CKF is a statewide organization committed to enrolling all children, adults, and families eligible for health insurance through Medicaid’s Hoosier Healthwise (HHW), Healthy Indiana Plan, (HIP), Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and the recently introduced Affordable Care Act/Marketplace (ACA) programs.

    CKF LaPorte has designated Nakia Bonds as your personal MCAS School Based Enrollment Specialist. Nakia is available to assist families with HHW, HIP, CHIP and ACA programs. Nakia is a certified Indiana Navigator and Federally Certified Application Counselor.

    Open enrollment for the ACA Marketplace plans is available until March 31, 2014. To receive additional information and enrollment assistance, visit http://ckfindiana.org/news/laporte/ckf-laporte-100-percent-campaign/ for fax referral forms that can be submitted to your student's school nurse or contact Donnicka Hurt directly using the information below.
