#ReadySetEnroll: Open Enrollment Starts Today, November 15!

By William Tomasko

With the health insurance marketplaces back up for business today, we’re facing our next big opportunity to expand access to quality, affordable health coverage.

Millions of Americans were able to get covered during the first open enrollment period, and starting today, millions more are one step closer to health insurance that finally fits their budget and meets their needs.

It’s time to connect even more Americans to coverage — and to make sure sure current enrollees know how to stay covered: Ready, set, enroll!

Here’s what you can do to make this weekend’s launch a success:
