Press Release: Bus Tour

INTotal Health’s Medicaid Fun Bus Tours Northern Virginia

July 8, 2015

FALLS CHURCH, VA — For the next eight weeks, INTotal Health’s Medicaid Fun Bus will travel to counties and communities throughout Northern Virginia to let the underserved Medicaid population know they can exercise their right to choose a health plan during open enrollment, which ends Aug. 31.
 
 “We’re definitely excited to be out in the community with our fun bus,” says Tarik Chapman, manager, community outreach. “It’s so important that we inform the Medicaid population about their rights and options  available to them. We want the community to know about the enrollment process and to know that INTotal Health is here, we care, and we can help.”
 
 During the INTotal Health Medicaid Fun Bus Tour, staff will be onsite to answer questions about INTotal Health, how to apply for Medicaid, and how to switch Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCO).
 
The fun bus is fully equipped with interactive games and activities such as Nintendo Wii consoles with games such as Just Dance and Zumba Fitness; hula-hoops; and Wii sports.
 
“We want everyone to think about us when they think about ways to receive accurate information on how to make healthy lifestyle choices,” explains Chapman. “We want them to know that they have the right to choose a health plan for their family, and we want them to exercise that right.”
 
Each week the INTotal Health Medicaid Fun Bus will be in a different county and community. The next stop on the INTotal Health Medicaid Fun Bus Tour is Prince William County. The fun bus will be in PWC from July 6 through July 15.
