DAVENPORT, Iowa – February 13, 2014 -- Enroll Quad Cities is announcing a new enrollment initiative called "Walk-in Wednesdays" at their office located at 114 West 2nd Street.

Enroll Quad Cities announced the opening of the enrollment location two weeks ago, and has since experienced increased demand of Quad Citians who need coverage.

"We want to give people every opportunity we can to get covered," said Kimberly Kim, a health insurance navigator for Genesis Health System, a partner organization of EnrollQC. "There has been a high number of people who want to just stop in and see us, and that's getting more and more difficult to work in with so many appointments already scheduled.

"Walk-in Wednesdays will give us the ability to have people stop in on a consistent day of the week and see someone quickly without making an appointment."

Currently, residents of the Iowa and Illinois Quad Cities are able to stop in and make an appointment for an enrollment session Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday.

Enrollment assistors from Genesis and Community Health Care will be participating in the Walk-in Wednesday effort.

Those who are interested in making an appointment to enroll are encouraged to call 563-421-ENRL (3675) or send an email to enrollment@genesishealth.com
