Join Enroll America to learn about data-driven grassroots and partner engagement strategies that will help maximize your outreach and enrollment efforts, including how to build and sustain a volunteer program, increase in-person help in your community, and multiply your effect through innovative partner engagement work.

Here at Enroll America we want consumers to get covered, and stay covered, and research shows that the more consumers know about the Affordable Care Act and health insurance, the more likely they are to keep their coverage. We know that helping consumers understand their options, select a plan that meets their need and budget, and learn how to use their coverage once enrolled is crucial, but incredibly challenging. Join Enroll America and Consumers Union to learn about the critical connection between health insurance literacy and retention and how to talk about some of the key health insurance concepts consumers struggle with. We’ll also share some useful resources to keep in your back pocket as these issues continue to come up in the months ahead. This webinar is appropriate for enrollment stakeholders interested in addressing gaps in knowledge about health insurance among consumers to make sure they get covered, and stay covered!

Last year’s enrollment period (OE1) affirmed the critical role in-person assisters play in helping consumers get covered. Join Enroll America and partners to learn about the role agents and brokers can play, and the successful partnerships that brought agents and brokers together with other enrollment stakeholders to increase assistance capacity during OE1. As the second enrollment period (OE2) quickly approaches, speakers will discuss how to apply lessons learned to ensure consumers get the help they need to get covered and stay covered. This webinar is appropriate for stakeholders working on outreach and enrollment assistance.
