Speaker: Erin Hemlin, National Director of Training and Consumer Education, Young Invincibles

Overview: Open Enrollment begins November 1, 2018, and will only last six weeks. With such a short timeline and fewer resources than ever, it is important to prepare in advance. This webinar will help O&E staff and leadership strengthen skills so that they can provide excellent assistance and guidance. In it, the presenter will discuss challenges and opportunities heading into the 6th Affordable Care Act (ACA) Open Enrollment period (OE6). This will include updated consumer messaging in the current health care landscape, new alternative options to ACA coverage, such as short-term health plans and how to communicate differences between these plans and ACA coverage, and updated enrollment data based on uninsured rates in Region VIII (CO, MT, ND, SD, UT, WY).

Target Audience: CHC and PCA Outreach & Enrollment staff as well as other staff members interested in increasing successful services for immigrant populations.

Cost: This live event is FREE for health centers (Health Center Program Awardees) and Primary Care Associations (PCAs) in Region VIII (CO, MT, ND, SD, UT, and WY).  Please visit the CHAMPS Region VIII Health Centers and Primary Care Associations webpage to determine if your organization qualifies for free participation.
