Health care providers are uniquely positioned to connect their communities to quality, affordable health coverage, and Enroll America provides an array of resources for providers engaged in outreach and enrollment.
Resources for Providers
Providers are trusted sources of information for their patients, and our fact sheet arms providers with simple messages that will greatly increase their uninsured patients’ interest in enrolling, identifies clear next steps providers can empower patients to take, and outlines easy ways to spread the word to patients that new health coverage options are available.
Enroll America can help organizations learn how to become a Certified Application Counselor (CAC) organization, recruit volunteers to serve as individual CACs, and identify other community partners to work with.
Certified Application Counselors (CACs) provide free, unbiased assistance to consumers applying for and enrolling in health coverage. This fact sheet explains the significance of CAC programs, the process for becoming a CAC organization, and the duties of CACs.
Consumers now have the opportunity to learn about and enroll in affordable health coverage in a variety of ways, including through in-person enrollment assistance from a trained and certified person in their community. In-person assistance has played a crucial role in maximizing enrollment during this first open enrollment period.
We have tips and strategies for individuals and organizations getting the word out about the new health insurance options.
We’ve put together this toolkit to help hospital administrators understand and make the most of the unique opportunity to enroll patients and their families who are likely to be eligible in Medicaid for a temporary “presumptive eligibility” period using a vastly simplified application.
Although it is too early to connect specific hospital presumptive eligibility (HPE) policies with increased enrollment, many promising practices have begun to emerge. This fact sheet provides suggestions for HPE policies that hospitals can work with their state to implement. Examples include developing high-quality training materials, establishing realistic performance standards, and creating consumer-friendly policies.
