Let’s talk about…Open enrollment! 

During Thanksgiving week we are so thankful for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a.k.a ObamaCare,! Open enrollment is happening now until December 15. So take some time over the holiday to sign up - getting an amazing plan is easy!

The ACA is an incredible opportunity to get affordable and comprehensive health insurance coverage. Unfortunately, new hurdles by the Trump-Pence administration, including confusion about where the law stands can make the process seem difficult to understand or make enrollment seem not worth your time.

Let’s be clear….

Enrollment is OPEN and there are more choices at lower costs! And we're here to help you understand the process a little bit better to hopefully reduce some of that confusion.

So get covered in one click or phone call - it’s easy just follow these steps: 

Step 1:

Shop for Health care and enroll in the ACA at Healthcare.gov by Dec. 15! Don’t wait!

(Plans are more affordable than ever! And there are more insurers to choose from.)

There are many ways to enroll. Enrollees can log on to the official ACA marketplace at HealthCare.gov or CuidadodeSalud.Gov, call the marketplace call center at 1-800-318-2596, or make an appointment for in-person assistance through the Get Covered Connector.


Step 2:

Tell your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, people on the street, etc. about the open enrollment, the great options and how easy it actually is to get signed up! 

Word of mouth is key to helping keep this coverage an option so share on all your social channels. 


Step 3:

Enjoy your year of quality health care!

How my abortion turned my life around

In my 20’s I felt like I was an empty basket. If I met someone who could fill my basket with as much self-loathing and hatred as I felt for myself, I would let them. By the time I was 26, I had three children when I discovered I was pregnant again. I’m telling my story now because I believe we all have a right to reproductive health care and there should be no shame in choices we make.
