The uninsured have until March 31st to sign up for health care as part of the Affordable Care Act.
The push is on in Toledo to get folks enrolled.
The focus Saturday was on central Toledo residents like Robert Cunningham.
Trained navigators were on hand at the Mott Library.
Mr. Cunningham has been unemployed and uninsured for one year.
"It's been horrifying, scary, threatening, uncomfortable. Just uncomfortable," said Mr. Cunningham.
The event was sponsored by the group 'Neighborhood Health Association."
Navigators say even if folks don't have an income, they do have health care options.
"Medicaid is extended to people who previously may not have qualified before. Additionally, just a lot of misperceptions that our navigators are able to sit down with them and clear up in minutes," said Rachel Noleff of the Association.
Most adults under 65 will be required to have health insurance.
If not, they face a fine of $95 or 1 percent of their annual income, which could be assessed when they file their 2014 federal income tax returns.
The next enrollment period won't begin until November 15th.
The message now is to sign up.
"We make sure that consent forms are signed and we walk through each and every step of the process with them to make sure they know what they're getting," said Ms. Noleff.
The next enrollment session is Monday at the UAW Local 14 Hall on Jackman Road.
