Promoting Healthy Communities: Libraries Connecting You to Coverage
PLA, in partnership with Community Catalyst and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, are working together to inform communities about changes to the Affordable Care Act for 2019. Open enrollment periods have been reduced from November 1, 2018-December 15, 2018. Consumers that receive in-person assistance are nearly 60% more likely to enroll in the health insurance marketplace. Public libraries, as critical community anchors, are well positioned to share information about the change and support patron’s efforts to enroll successfully. 120 awardees will receive $300 for the public library to apply towards increasing communication about the upcoming the Open Enrollment period.
The application will close 11:59pm CT, Sunday, October 21, 2018.
