From Families USA:
Open enrollment in the new health care benefits available under the Affordable Care Act begins October 1. Engaging communities and uninsured stakeholders now is key to ensuring the success of enrollment efforts. Community groups, faith communities, health care providers, and advocacy organizations are busy making plans for outreach and education. Families USA next Health Action webinar will feature a discussion with Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) United Health Care Workers about the results of two pilot outreach projects. Both projects tested and evaluated effective methods for reaching, educating, and engaging target communities about health care coverage options.

Planned Parenthood will discuss the two canvass pilot projects they conducted in Detroit, Michigan, and Dallas, Texas, from May to June, which tested messaging and enrollment best practices related to the Affordable Care Act. They will present their results and the lessons they learned.
SEIU will discuss the pilot program they ran in south Los Angeles, California, which focused on determining the obstacles that consumers face to getting health coverage and methods to find, screen, and enroll people in health coverage.
There is a lot of work to be done between now and October 1 to make sure we are ready for open enrollment. We hope you can join us for this important conversation that can inform your outreach and enrollment plans and goals.
