St. Louis County Library, Affinia Healthcare Host Medicaid Sign-up Events
St. Louis County Library and Affinia Healthcare are partnering to offer Medicaid sign-up events at three SLCL branches this fall. Representatives from Affinia Healthcare will be available to help individuals sign up or re-enroll for Medicaid benefits on a weekly basis starting in September.
The following branches will host Medicaid Sign-up Events:
- Lewis & Clark, Tuesdays 2:00-4:00 p.m.
- Natural Bridge, Mondays 10:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m.
- Weber Road, Fridays 12:00-2:00 p.m.
Over 54,000 Missourians, including over 25,000 children, have lost healthcare coverage since the end of the public health emergency was declared in May. As states have begun the process of “unwinding” the continuous Medicaid coverage rule, it is estimated that up to 300,000 could lose coverage.
“It is critical that our families who are covered by Medicaid are informed of these changes and the possible consequences if action is not taken immediately,” said Dr. Kendra Holmes, Affinia Healthcare President & CEO. “St. Louis County Library is an excellent partner for this initiative as their work is so important to our community. By utilizing these Library branches, the Affinia Healthcare Outreach Team can speak directly to those affected and help them keep their health insurance coverage.”
St. Louis County Library Director & CEO Kristen Sorth said, “We are pleased to partner with Affinia Healthcare to help our patrons access important health care services. St. Louis County Library has become a comprehensive solution for a variety of important resources and services in our region. Partnerships such as this one with Affinia Healthcare help further strengthen our support for the communities we serve.”
