The mobile tour, which runs until March, involves two specially designed vehicles stopping at health centers, retail locales, churches and other facilities across the state to provide free one-on-one meetings with residents. The tour will be in Louisville Jan. 5 from noon until 8 p.m. at the Wal-Mart in Louisville.

Health and well-being company launched “Covering Mississippi,” a statewide mobile outreach and education campaign to provide uninsured Mississippians with information and answers on the health care coverage options now available to them through the Affordable Care Act.

Until March 2014, two specially designed vehicles are traveling Mississippi, stopping in cities at health centers, retail outlets, churches, schools and civic auditoriums to provide free one-on-one meetings with residents. Anyone can speak to the Humana-certified health insurance agents to learn more about the Health Insurance Marketplace and their health care options. With one in five Mississippians currently uninsured, it’s critical that residents select a plan before the March 31 open enrollment deadline for the Mississippi individual market exchange to avoid a penalty.
