Many of us don’t really understand what we need to do about the new health care act but West LA College and some of our local politicians are doing something about it. This Saturday, February 22 at the Fine Arts Complex at West LA from 1-3 pm, you can learn more about Covered California and get assistance with enrolling in a health insurance plan. The event is free and open to the public with free parking available as well.

Here are two things you need to know right away. First of all, the deadline to sign up for health insurance is March 15. The second thing is that if you don’t have it, either independently or through your employer, you will face a penalty of $95 or 1 percent of your income, whichever is greater. A family will be charged a penalty of $95 per uncovered adult and $47.50 per uncovered child (up to $285 for a family) or 1 percent of the family’s income, whichever is greater.

This event is sponsored by West Los Angeles College and the offices of Congresswoman Karen Bass, State Senator Holly Mitchell and Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas. Also supporting the event are Dr. Clarence Shields of Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic and TEAM Heal Foundation, and Culver City Chamber of Commerce President Steven Rose.
