Illinois state Rep. David Allen Welter (R-Morris) is set to host a free Health Insurance & Wellness Fair on Nov. 7 at the Fox Valley Community Center in Sandwich. The two-hour forum kicks off at 5 p.m. and will be co-hosted by fellow House Republican Rep. Tom Demmer (R-Dixon).
Attendees will learn about health care options, find out if they are eligible for Medicaid, and can potentially purchase plans on the Get Covered Illinois marketplace.
“We are committed to making sure that local families are aware of all the options available to them when it comes to health insurance coverage,” Welter said in a press release. “We look forward to welcoming everyone on Nov. 7 and helping local residents find the health care plan that best fits their family’s needs.”

Officials from area hospitals and local health care organizations will be offering free brochures, consultation and, in some cases, free health screenings.
