BECOME A CHAMPION FOR COVERAGE

WHAT IS A CHAMPION FOR COVERAGE ORGANIZATION?

A Champion for Coverage can be a local organization, or a national organization, who represents under or uninsured communities. Champions for Coverage actively provide outreach and education about the Health Insurance Marketplace and how consumers can enroll in health coverage through HealthCare.gov, Medicaid or CHIP (the Children’s Health Insurance Program).

WHY SHOULD MY ORGANIZATION BECOME A CHAMPION FOR COVERAGE?

The Marketplace offers affordable coverage to uninsured people. Still, many are unaware of this advantage. We need your help to get the word out and help with enrollment.

On the Marketplace, people can find health coverage that meets their needs and fits their budget. 4 in 5 people are able to find coverage for just $10 a month.

Every health plan in the Marketplace offers the same set of essential health benefits, like doctor visits, preventive care, hospitalization, prescriptions, and more.

WHAT ACTIVITIES DOES A CHAMPION FOR COVERAGE DO IN THEIR COMMUNITY?

Here are some ideas for how you can get the word out to your community:

  • Point people to official resources about the Marketplace, like HealthCare.gov or the 24/7 Consumer Call Center: 1-800-318-2596.
  • Email your network of people about the Marketplace.
  • Post information at your organization’s offices.
  • Give out Marketplace information to coworkers and clients.
  • Host a conference call, webinar, or another educational event about the Marketplace.
  • Include a story about the Marketplace in your newsletter.
  • Customize and distribute your own Marketplace materials.
  • Train your staff on the Marketplace.
  • Connect with your partners or clients through official Marketplace social media channels to share their stories.
  • Provide space for Marketplace enrollment sessions or fairs.
  • Provide computers so people can browse Marketplace plans.
