Looking for Resources on Health Insurance Literacy? Check Out What’s Already Available

By Joseph Ventre

Enroll America’s Health Insurance Literacy (HIL) Resource Hub offers many helpful tools for stakeholders working with consumers on enrollment and using coverage. Most all of these materials have been produced by various organizations across the country working to ensure consumers get covered and stay covered.

HIL resources exist in a variety of shapes and sizes — presentations, fact sheets, brochures, digital tools, and more.

And in recent weeks new materials have been added to the HIL Resource Hub — you can find them by checking the box that says “New” under “Resource Types” in the right-hand sidebar.

Two of the new resources are workshop-centered materials designed to empower consumers with the information they need to make informed decisions.

Kansas State Research and Extension designed a flexible curriculum for stakeholders working with consumers that contains PowerPoint slides and lesson plans on shopping for coverage that can fill a full two hours or a short 30 minutes.

Maricopa Integrated Health System (MIHS) developed a curriculum for people living with HIV/AIDS. While it’s community-specific, the modules contain information such as basic health care terms and enrollment tips that can be universally applied. MIHS even includes questions that stakeholders can use to evaluate their work with consumers!

And, Raising Women’s Voices published a step-by-step guide for women that shares best practices on how to start using new health insurance, boiling it down to five steps.

With OE3 on the horizon, Enroll America will continue to update the HIL Resource Hub, and we encourage readers to continue to share new or existing materials with us for posting.
