Get Covered America is a national campaign of Enroll America focused on raising public awareness and engaging consumers about the new health insurance benefits and health care options made available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Why This Campaign? Why Now?
Beginning October 1st, 2013 until March 31st, 2014, there will be new Health Insurance Marketplaces that will allow people to compare prices and shop for health insurance where they live. During this open enrollment period, millions of Americans will finally have the opportunity to buy quality, affordable health insurance. But, more than three out of four of the uninsured don’t know that these changes are coming. That’s why we need Get Covered America to help get the word out.
- GetCoveredAmerica.org is where you can find and share important information on the new campaign. In the upcoming months, the site will offer online tools, as well as share personal stories from everyday Americans on what getting health coverage means to them.
- Enroll America’s field teams are also mobilizing in communities in several states throughout the country, ready to arm people in local communities with the necessary information before shopping for health insurance – including where to go to get unbiased, no-nonsense help signing up for coverage, and how to possibly qualify for financial assistance. You can help us get the word out.
Enroll America will continue with the work we have always done –convening national and state stakeholders, identifying and disseminating best practices, and engaging many different voices in support of an easy, accessible, and widely available enrollment process. Get Covered America is just one part of the work we are doing to fulfill our mission of maximizing the number of uninsured Americans who enroll in health coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act.
