Get Covered, Tennessee!

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is currently the law of the land. It provides opportunities for qualifying individuals and families to enroll in publicly supported health insurance. 

The Trump administration terminated $23 million worth of contracts with companies that help people sign up for coverage and cut by 90% the funding for advertising and half the funding for consumer helpers called "navigators".  Furthermore, the ACA enrollment period has been shortened to just 45 days.

It is important for the public to have information about their options for health insurance enrollment under ACA; individuals need to make informed choices about the health care that is best and affordable for themselves and their family. The ACA enrollment period begins on November 1, 2017.  

We are recruiting volunteers to help make sure Tennesseans are informed of their health insurance options. It is also important to dispel misconceptions and stigma about the ACA and convey why health care insurance is needed. Thus, in addition to highlighting the efforts of Get Covered Tennesee, this event will feature volunteer opportunities for supporting the ACA enrollment effort.
