Deadline fast approaching for health care coverage

With only three days left before the deadline for health care enrollment, the Kern County Department of Human Services helped uninsured people sign up for coverage Thursday.

A health care coverage fair took place at the Valley Plaza Mall, where about 300 people showed up and a number of insurance providers set up booths to answer questions and help them get enrolled.

“We have all these partners here ready with their laptops to initiate and submit the application for Covered California,” said Pat Perales with Human Services.
