Millions of Americans Already Benefiting from Affordable Care Act
Santa Ana, CA – This Tuesday, February 11, local OFA volunteers will be taking part in a national day of action to make sure fellow community members have the tools and information they need to get enrolled in quality, affordable health insurance.
Millions of Americans are enrolling in health coverage through the new health insurance marketplace that fits their budgets and covers their needs, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. There is still time to sign up, and OFA is dedicated to having the one-on-one conversations with neighbors, friends and family members that help them get the information they need to enroll.
WHO: OFA-CA volunteers and supporters
WHERE: Latino Health Access, 450 W 4th St #130, Santa Ana, CA 92701
WHEN: 2:00 PM on Tuesday, February 11
Enrollment in the marketplaces extends through March, but for those who want coverage to start on March 1, they need to sign up by February 15. OFA volunteers across the country will be out on Tuesday to make sure their neighbors are equipped with the tools and information they need to get covered.
