Molina Healthcare of Michigan Gives Away 250 Bags of Groceries to Oak Park Residents
In an effort to help those in need and provide information about Michigan’s Health Insurance Marketplace, Molina Healthcare of Michigan gave away 250 reusable bags filled with groceries at the Glory Supermarket in Oak Park. The event was free and open to the public and bags were distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some of the items included were ground turkey, whole wheat pasta, tomato sauce, a three pound bag of onions and dinner rolls.
Molina Healthcare representatives also distributed information and answered questions about Michigan’s Health Insurance Marketplace. Molina Healthcare is committed to making health care accessible and affordable to those who are low-income or uninsured. Through the health insurance marketplace, individuals are able to purchase insurance for a low cost and many may even qualify for federal subsidies to help pay for their monthly premiums. The deadline to sign up this year is March 31.
"I was pleased to be able to help feed local families and I was glad to see so many people come out today to take advantage of this great event," said Senator Vincent Gregory (D-Southfield). "I appreciate Molina's commitment to our community, both in offering free groceries to those in need and in making sure low income and uninsured residents understand their health care options."
