On September 7, groups around the country will host events as part of Get Covered America’s National Day of Action. Get Covered America is a nonprofit, nonpartisan campaign of Enroll America focused on raising public awareness and engaging consumers about the new health insurance available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The Day of Action is designed to help consumers understand their coverage options and learn how to get enrolled. Visit the Get Covered America website to attend an event in a city near you, host an event, sign up for National Day of Action email updates, and participate in a training webinar on how to partner with navigators to help people get enrolled in coverage.

Additionally, CMS is hosting the Summer 2013 Health Insurance Marketplace Training Calendar, a series of webinars designed to better prepare you and your clients to understand the basics of the state-based health insurance marketplaces and health reform. Webinars will cover topics such as eligibility, enrollment, streamlined applications, plan structures, and small business health insurance plans. In addition to attending these webinars yourself, the National Council encourages you reach out to your entitlement workers, case managers, and other related staff to take advantage of these resources so that you and your clients can make the most of the new opportunities created through health reform.

With less than 40 days remaining before the beginning of open enrollment, now is the time to begin helping your clients understand their new options under health reform and get enrolled.
