Plain language reference guide available to assist HIV service organizations in health insurance enrollment efforts
As we approach the 2015 Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment Period (Nov. 15, 2014 – Feb. 15, 2015), many HIV service organizations and community-based groups nationwide are gearing up to help people at risk for and living with HIV to find and enroll in affordable health coverage.
The Ryan White Affordable Care Enrollment (ACE) Technical Assistance Center has developed many tools and resources to assist in such efforts. One useful tool that we saw during the recent U.S. Conference on AIDS is the ACE TA Center’s Plain Language Quick Reference Guide for Health Care Enrollment. This document provides easy to understand, plain language explanations of many health insurance terms. Developed to assist Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grantees to understand health insurance enrollment terms and explain them to their clients, this free resource may be useful for you or your colleagues as you prepare for outreach and enrollment activities for the 2015 Marketplace Open Enrollment Period.
