How will your families learn about the Affordable Care Act and the Health Insurance Marketplace? 

Today, every family must make health care decisions. The issues surrounding Health Insurance are complex and the information is complicated. Despite these challenges - and others such as language barriers - there is a penalty for failing to respond to efforts to become insured. 

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides the families you serve unprecedented access to health care and benefits. According to a large-scale study published in 2011 by the National Bureau of Economic Research, “When poor people are given medical insurance, they not only find regular doctors and see doctors more often but they also feel better, are less depressed and are better able to maintain financial stability”. 

The next Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment Period begins November 15th and extends through February 15th. Families who have recently moved may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period now. Advocate Health, LLC is committed to providing education, support, and information in “parent-friendly” terms.

Your families may be asking: 

  • How do I apply? 
  • Do I have to get Health Insurance? 
  • Why should I buy/get/use Health Insurance? 
  • How does the Marketplace work if I already qualify for Medicaid? 
  • Will I get financial assistance to help buy health insurance? 
  • How much financial assistance do I qualify for to help buy health insurance? 
  • What kind of health insurance can I get? 

We welcome an opportunity to participate in upcoming Back to School events to provide families an opportunity to learn more about community organizations, social services, and local resources. Additionally, your parental engagement/involvement programs, such as PTA/O, SAC, Boosters, and/or Parent Nights, can offer an immediate and effective form to provide access to valuable information about the new Individual Medical Marketplace or the Health Insurance “Exchange” to your families. 

Please contact us today to discuss our community outreach efforts and schedule a parent engagement event.
