Affordable Care Act Website of the Week: December 9-13, 2013


The www.enrollamerica.org website contains a wide range of up-to-date information on health insurance outreach and enrollment opportunities in every state. Enroll America is a non-profit, non-partisan organization with a mission to facilitate easy and accessible enrollment in affordable health insurance for the millions of Americans who currently lack health care coverage. 

The Enroll America website includes:

Reminder:

  • Every state has a Health Insurance Marketplace that functions as a portal to health coverage.
     
  • Some states have elected to operate their own Marketplace, others to be served by a Marketplace operated by the federal government, and still others to share some responsibilities in partnership with the federal Marketplace.  
     
  • The Marketplaces are intended to facilitate access to affordable healthcare coverage for people with incomes below 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL) in every state (even in those that have elected not to expand Medicaid coverage to people with incomes below 138% of the FPL).  
     
  • In addition, in all states people who are currently eligible for the legacy Medicaid program can be identified and referred for Medicaid enrollment by the Marketplace, without regard to the states’ decisions about Medicaid coverage expansion.
     
  • The federal government is funding specialized outreach and enrollment assistance in every state.
*Because of possible new insurance options, and the increase in access to enrollment for many clients, it is essential that housing and services providers use the information available on websites such as www.enrollmentamerica.org to familiarize themselves with the Health Marketplace options in their state, and develop a plan to assist their constituents to obtain Medicaid or affordable health insurance coverage.
