Covered California urges Kern residents to sign up for health care amid increased financial help | News

About 120,000 people living in eastern Kern County and the Central Valley are without health care, and California’s leading health insurance marketplace launched a virtual campaign in Bakersfield on Friday to motivate these people to sign up for coverage.

Event speakers conveyed the affordability of signing up for health care under Covered California while emphasizing its importance. Speaking at the virtual event, activist Dolores Huerta told of a farm worker who was unaware he had a brain tumor because he skipped basic checkups. Enrolling in Covered California allowed him to get the health care he needed, she said.
