Get Covered America staff will be in Douglasville Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Jesse Davis Community Center to inform the community about new health insurance coverage options under the Affordable Care Act and to help residents understand that financial assistance is available on The Health Insurance Marketplace.

In-Person Assistors will also be in attendance to help residents review available health insurance plans and enroll.

As of Jan. 1, close to 60,000 previously uninsured Georgians have enrolled for coverage on the Health Insurance Marketplace. Seventy-eight percent have received financial help to subsidize the cost of their plan premiums and many have utilized the expertise of local in-person assistors.

“We are reaching out to people wherever they are with information about the financial and in-person assistance that is available to them,” said Alex Dombronovich, state communications director for Enroll America-Georgia. “The new Health Insurance Marketplace is a huge relief to millions of Americans, many of whom have never had health insurance. We are excited to come out to Douglasville and help more Georgians get covered.”

Because many people are not yet aware, Get Covered America emphasizes that financial help is available to Georgians. Additionally, they have optimized their digital advertising campaign to guide consumers to the Get Covered Calculator, a consumer-friendly tool that quickly provides individuals and families with realistic cost estimates for new coverage. The Get Covered Calculator uses the most up-to-date data to provide consumers an estimate of what assistance they’re eligible for, and then connects them directly to the appropriate place for them to start the enrollment process.

Get Covered America is a national campaign of Enroll America that is focused on educating consumers about the benefits of health coverage and the new health insurance available under the Affordable Care Act. With operations in 11 states, its grassroots team is powered by passionate staff and volunteers with one motivating goal: to give Americans the information they need to choose an affordable health insurance plan that’s right for them and their families.

Enroll America is the nation’s leading health care enrollment coalition, bringing together community and health organizations, businesses and others to inform consumers about the new health coverage options and how to enroll in them. It is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
