A Health Insurance Literacy Resource for the Outreach and Enrollment Community

By Sophie Stern

When it comes to health insurance, knowledge is power. People with more information about their new health coverage options under the Affordable Care Act have been more likely to enroll and more confident that they can retain their coverage.

To help promote tools that empower consumers to get covered and stay covered, Enroll America has launched a new and improved Health Insurance Literacy (HIL) Resource Hub. It’s an interactive online clearinghouse of resources from a wide array of organizations. The Hub has been up and running since the summer of 2014, but now has new features that will make it easier to find and evaluate materials and resources on health insurance concepts and using coverage.

On the page, you can now:

  • Easily find consumer-friendly digital tools, fact sheets, worksheets, videos, and more.
  • Sort resources by topic, including “Choosing a Plan” or “Using Coverage.”
  • Narrow down resources by types, such as “Consumer-Tested,” “Digital Tool,” and “Fact Sheet.”
  • Rate resources based on how helpful you find them.

This Hub is a direct outcome of a HIL workshop at Enroll America’s 2014 State of Enrollment Conference and post-conference meetings with workshop attendees convened by Enroll America and Consumers Union. During follow-up meetings, participants identified the need for a resource hub to foster collaboration among enrollment stakeholders on HIL and to create a one-stop-shop so organizations do not have to reinvent the wheel.

Check out the Hub, and please join us at Enroll America’s 2015 State of Enrollment Conference so that we can continue the conversation on HIL and the tools and resources that are needed to support consumers and the enrollment community.

For more information and to register, visit our State of Enrollment website. Early-bird registration rates are only available through April 13. We look forward to seeing you in June!
