The Desert Sun

More than 40 people showed up Thursday to sign up for health insurance as desert health care leaders launched a new program designed to enroll as many of the Coachella Valley’s roughly 90,000 uninsured residents in the Affordable Care Act as possible.

The new outreach efforts include a $1.2 million partnership between the Desert Healthcare District and the California Endowment and a newly launched Path to Health from Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs and John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Indio.
