Express Outreach: Promoting Health Insurance and Enrollment Literacy with Inmates

The goal of this project is to engage, educate and prepare inmates to enroll in health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) upon release from the Gallatin County Detention Center. The specific objectives are : a) to increase an inmate?s knowledge and understanding of the health reform law, mandatory benefits and consumer protections; b) to improve an inmate?s level of health insurance literacy; and, c) to educate and prepare inmates for making smart choices for health insurance coverage. This will be accomplished through training sessions to be held at the Gallatin County Detention Center, including pre- and post-training questionnaires to evaluate the impact of the training.
