Valley Health to participate in Cover WV Day to Aid Uninsured West Virginians

[Huntington, West Virginia]  December 11, 2023 – Valley Health Systems, Inc. is thrilled to participate in Cover WV Day with the goal of enrolling uninsured West Virginians in the Health Insurance Marketplace.   Cover WV Day is set for January 9, 2024.  Valley Heath will assist in signups at our Pea Ridge Business Center located at 4290 US Route 60 in Huntington from 10 am – 4 pm.

Many West Virginians are without health care coverage, and even more are losing coverage due to the changing rules around Medicaid renewals. In order to help as many people as possible, Valley Health is partnering as a WV Navigator with the West Virginia Primary Care Association (WVPCA) in this effort.   Anyone needing health coverage can go to ??? Valley Health location to get onsite assistance in enrolling in the Marketplace, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP).

Anybody needing health insurance can walk in to receive assistance from the Assistor or Navigator at that location. Depending on how busy each location is, the Assistor or Navigator will either book an appointment with them to help before the end of Open Enrollment on January 16 or, if they are able to, they can provide immediate enrollment assistance.

In addition, WV Navigator will have Navigators assisting by phone for anyone who cannot make it out to an in-person location.

“Valley Health’s mission is quality care for everyone.   Knowing that thousands of West Virginia do not have healthcare coverage is upsetting.   We are thrilled to be part of the solution by taking part in Cover WV Day and make getting coverage easier and not be overwhelming,”  Steve Shattls, CEO  and President of Valley Health Systems, Inc.
