In the final weeks of the second open enrollment period, we’re sharing blog posts from partner organizations about how they’re getting the word out.
This guest post is from the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) has produced new consumer-friendly materials that inform the public about how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides greater access to prevention and early detection services, including lifesaving cancer screening tests. The materials are part of the broader effort of ACS CAN and the American Cancer Society to educate the public about ACA provisions that help people with cancer and those at risk of getting it.
The materials, which consist of posters and postcards, emphasize that lifesaving cancer screening tests are available under the law at little or no cost, and encourage people to talk to a doctor or medical professional about the cancer screening tests they may need.
You can download the posters and postcards in English and in Spanish. They are intended to emphasize the value of having health insurance and the benefits that the ACA requires most health plans to include.
The posters and postcards are designed for display and distribution by health centers, hospitals, Navigator organizations, and other places where people receive health care. We encourage you to share them with your colleagues and distribute them to your partners.
Although the deadline for the current open enrollment period is fast approaching on February 15, the posters and postcards can be used throughout the year to inform the public about the benefits of insurance coverage under the ACA.
