The long awaited October 1 is here and that means it’s time to shop for health insurance. We know that the new Health Insurance Marketplace can feel a lot like piecing together a puzzle. So, we are here to help.
We created a page on our site to share everything you must know to effectively help diverse older people navigate the Marketplace and learn why health coverage expansion under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) matters to older people of color, LGBT older people and older immigrants.
You can also support outreach and enrollment efforts to make sure our communities have the health care they need and deserve by downloading our flyer, Why the ACA Matters to Our Communities, which offers step-by-step instructions for enrolling in the Marketplace, as well as a rationale for the ACA and diverse older people.
We’ll answer any of your questions, ask us on Twitter: @diverseelders
