AURORA, Ill. – State Rep. Barbara Hernandez, D-Aurora, is holding an event for Aurorans to learn about recent expansions of Medicaid in Illinois, including immigrants ages 42 and up, regardless of their immigration status.

“Our community deserves full access to affordable doctors and prescriptions,” Hernandez said. “Medicaid provides significant benefits to many people who may have problems affording the doctors and medicines that are essential to their lives. This event will feature experts who are trained in helping people navigate the Medicaid system in both English and Spanish. I encourage anyone who is interested to attend.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring proof of identity, proof of address, proof of income and proof of household size. All attendees must sign up prior to the event at or by calling 630-898-6493.
