Accessible, affordable health care is critical to the fight against heart disease and stroke- and after decades in which the number of people without health insurance has been increasing, we have an unprecedented opportunity to expand coverage to millions of Americans. Beginning October 1st, 2013, uninsured Americans in all 50 states and D.C. will be able to shop for and enroll in coverage that meets their needs and fits their budget through the Health Insurance Marketplace (www.HealthCare.gov).
Whether you are currently uninsured or have family, friends, or neighbors who are, you can use the American Health Association’s ‘Covering All Americans’ toolkit to inform yourself about the Marketplace and share this important information with others. Check out the simple ways you can help spread the facts:
- Share our Health Insurance Marketplace infographic through your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) using the hashtag #HeartsforHealthcare.
- Change your Facebook cover photo to our Health Insurance Marketplace image during the open enrollment period (October 1, 2013-March 31, 2014).
- Print off our Health Insurance Marketplace flyer or infographic to share in your community.
- Learn about the new Health Insurance Marketplace by reviewing our PowerPoint presentation- then share the facts with others.
