WASHINGTON, DC – Today Enroll America released an infographic highlighting the millions of consumers who got covered during the third Affordable Care Act open enrollment period, and celebrating the thousands of organizations across the country who helped to make that success possible.
“In order to make the success we’ve seen permanent, Enroll America is focused on building a lasting coalition of local organizations to provide enrollment resources and support in their communities,” said Anne Filipic, President of Enroll America. “From the students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities who made tens of thousands of phone calls, to new partners like Philadelphia Gas Works who included enrollment info with utility bills, groups across the country are stepping up to keep the enrollment momentum going. By identifying new partners who can help us reach critical communities, training them on the successful outreach tactics we’ve developed, and providing them with digital tools to make their work even more effective, we helped connect millions to coverage and laid the ground work for success in the years to come.”
