United on Importance of Get Covered America Campaign

WASHINGTON – This week Enroll America – the nation’s leading health care enrollment coalition – is launching the “Get Covered America” campaign to start a just-the-facts conversation with consumers about the benefits of health insurance coverage and the new health care options that will be made available under the Affordable Care Act starting October 1st.   Today, Enroll America’s Board of Directors – representing a diverse group of stakeholders – released an open letter on their support for the campaign and encouraged others to join this important effort.

The full letter is below:

 

Open Letter from Enroll America Board of Directors:

We believe that the tens of millions of uninsured Americans need and deserve access to quality, affordable health care. And by expanding the number of individuals with insurance coverage, we can improve the health care system for all Americans.

This fall, through the Affordable Care Act, consumers will have a variety of quality, affordable insurance options available around the country through new health insurance marketplaces.

But we know people won’t enroll unless they know about it – and that it will take effort by both the private and public sectors to make sure they do. That’s why we’re working as part of a broad coalition of industry leaders, advocacy organizations, government, and others to help ensure the many working families, young people, and others who stand to benefit from the Affordable Care Act this fall have the information they need to make the right choice for themselves and their families.

In the coming months, it will be critical for all of us to spread the word about the important changes coming for consumers this fall.  As members of the Board of Directors of Enroll America, we are committed to doing our part.  We hope you will join us in this important effort.
