Enroll America works with a host of nationwide, state, and local partners to enhance outreach, share best practices, and get Americans enrolled in new health insurance. Here are just a few examples of how we’ve successfully worked with partners:
MomsRising is a national organization that works on the most critical issues facing women, mothers, and families by educating the public and mobilizing their members. As a part of the Get Covered Coalition and the She Knows Coalition, they have worked closely with Enroll America to educate and support women and mothers in their important role in educating their communities and families about the new health care law. In partnership with MomsRising we have coordinated educational events online, such as social media town halls, and through grassroots efforts by connecting our staff to their members for Health Care House Parties.
League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)
LULAC is one of the oldest and most respected Latino advocacy organizations in the country. As an Enroll America partner and member of the Latino Coalition, LULAC plays a critical role in the work we do in Latino outreach. LULAC hosted various Latino enrollment summits and provided key leadership in the outreach efforts during the first open enrollment period. LULAC is a trusted leader in the Latino community whose focus spans across ACA policy, outreach, and mobilization efforts.
Young Invincibles is a national non-profit organization that focuses on empowering young Americans on important issues such as health care. As a leading organization in reaching and working alongside young Americans, they were a key partner during the first open enrollment in sharing information that made an impact to young adults. They served a lead role in coordinating National Youth Enrollment Day, one of our largest efforts to reach young adults through libraries, schools, community centers, the internet, and more.
City of Philadelphia
The Get Covered America campaign works directly with the City of Philadelphia to conduct outreach to consumers about their new health insurance options. Our staff and volunteers partner with the city’s Free Library System to connect consumers to information and provide enrollment stations. City personnel get the word out through the municipal Department of Records, the Office of Housing and Community Development, the Mayor’s Commission On Aging, and the Community Empowerment Office. The Mayor’s office also garners earned media and helps to convene other local and regional partner organizations around enrollment.
Eastside Neighborhood Employment Center
Pittsburgh’s Eastside Neighborhood Employment Center (ENEC) formed a natural partnership with the Enroll America field team. Early into open enrollment, the ENEC agreed to keep a drop-box in their center for consumers to request more information about health insurance options — at times directly connecting more than 100 consumers a week to outreach assistance. The ENEC also hosted enrollment events with Enroll America, where in-person assisters could walk consumers through their health insurance application and get them covered on the spot. The ENEC has agreed to continue the partnership next year, but they didn’t stop there: they’ve trained other area organizations on how to utilize Enroll America’s resources to connect consumers to coverage.
National Council of La Raza (NCLR)
NCLR serves dual roles as an advisory board member and one of our partner engagement and outreach partners focusing on Latino engagement. NCLR is part of the Enroll America Latino Coalition and was strategic in organizing and supporting outreach efforts to the Latino community. With NCLR’s assistance, successful Latino Enrollment Summits were held across the country. Their participation as an Enroll America partner is crucial to the outreach we do in the Latino community.
American Indian Health & Family Services
American Indian Health & Family Services (AIHFS) has been a key partner with Enroll America Michigan since the field program began in July 2013. At first, AIHFS played a significant role in promoting and providing a location for Enroll America events. After AIHFS received one of four Navigator grants in Michigan, the organizations worked together to build successful enrollment events, strategize enrollment efforts, and coordinate with other health care and community partners in the Detroit Metro area. In large part due to this successful partnership, both Enroll America Michigan and AIHFS became leaders in their respective roles: As a Navigator, AIHFS began the first enrollment period with all cylinders firing and continued successfully throughout open enrollment. Similarly, Enroll America was able to produce some of its best outreach numbers in Michigan.
