It's time to get covered!
November 2, 2015

Millions of Americans count on HealthCare.gov for quality and affordable health coverage. If you or someone you care about needs health insurance, you should know that Open Enrollment for 2016 coverage runs from Nov. 1, 2015 through Jan. 31, 2016. Eight out of 10 people who enrolled in health coverage through HealthCare.gov qualified for financial help to make their monthly premiums more affordable. In fact, most people can find health insurance plans available for $75 or less per month. Learn about options available in your area by visiting HealthCare.gov or call us at 913-826-1200 and ask to speak with a Patient Navigator.

Recycle Your Lawn this Fall
October 28, 2015

Recycle your lawn this fall with Johnson County Health and Environment. Not only do grass clippings and leaves help retain moisture, they also return much needed nutrients back into the soil. Research recommends that you mulch your leaves and grrass clippings using a mulching mower. By "grass-cycling" properly your lawn will look great and you can save money on fertilizing. For more information on how you can recycle your lawn by mulch mowing or composting check out our Yard Waste & Composting Page.
