The not-for-profit company that insures residents eligible for Medicaid, Child Health Plus (CHP), Essential Plan, and other government-sponsored programs will host the event at their downtown Buffalo office – 446 Main Street.

This free event will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy complimentary refreshments, including popsicles from 716 Popsicles+, and connect with various community organizations such as the Monroe Plan for Medical Care Health Home, The Conversation Project at ECMC, and many more. Children will be able to enjoy a visit from one of the Minions starting at noon, free face painting, balloon animals, crafts, and more. YourCare will also be raffling off multiple backpacks to celebrate the start of “back to school” season. Backpacks will be stuffed with school supplies to help kids get ready for the upcoming school year.

In addition, those that attend can meet with YourCare’s Marketplace Facilitated Enrollers to find out if they qualify for free or low-cost health insurance.

At the downtown enrollment center, YourCare current and prospective members in the area can meet with enrollment staff, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to inquire about health insurance, receive help in building a family healthcare plan, research primary care providers, and much more. The YourCare office is steps from Lafayette Square.
