Connecting Muslims to Coverage
AMHP is working with various partners across the country to help educate Muslims about the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and to coordinate enrollment events to Connect Muslims to Health Insurance Coverage.
We currently don’t have any contacts in some states that do have high numbers of uninsured but we have partnered with Enroll America in those states and they would love to be of assistance in helping our communities find affordable health insurance coverage.
If you know of any Masjids or Islamic organizations in the following states that would welcome or be interested in having outreach workers come to their organizations to answer questions about the ACA and to help people sign up for public and private health insurance, please contact Program Manager, Khadija Gurnah, at firstname.lastname@example.org
