Prepare for Launch of ‘Get Covered’ Campaign

Prepare for Launch of ‘Get Covered’ Campaign

On June 22, consumer-health groups across the nation will launch what they hope will be a massive education and enrollment campaign to find uninsured people and get them ready to sign up for health coverage.

The campaign will be called “Get Covered, America!” Its official launch is June 22  because that marks 100 days until the opening of state and federal  online “marketplaces” where the uninsured can shop for coverage.  Under the Affordable Care Act, Americans who don’t already have health insurance through employers, Medicare or some other source are required to get it as of Jan. 1.

The goal of “Get Covered, America!” is to find the uninsured and show them how to get coverage, said Jennifer Sullivan of Enroll America, a Washington, D.C. non-profit that is coordinating the education campaign.
