Open Enrollment for 2015 Coverage 

The next open enrollment period to get health insurance coverage for 2015 lasts from November 15, 2014, through February 15, 2015. 

Community health centers nationwide are at the epicenter of the effort to enroll the uninsured into health care coverage. Currently over 1,200 health centers receive ongoing funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to conduct outreach and enrollment (O&E) assistance activites in their service areas.

NACHC is providing a range of support on O&E activities:

Outreach and Enrollment Policy Updates

Since the last open enrollment period ended on March 31, 2014, there has been a flurry of activity related to funding and policy issues. Refer to the NACHC O&E Policy page for the most recent and relevant policy and funding announcements.

In July 2014, NACHC launched its webinar series, "Sign Me Up!" Navigating the Outreach and Enrollment Landscape. The series has included webinars on Medicaid enrollment strategies, preparing for the next open enrollment period, income determination and tax-related issues, and a TeleForum to kick off the 2014-15 Open Enrollment Period. Click here for more information on future events, archived NACHC webinars, and links to O&E-related webinars produced by other national organizations.

NACHC partners with national, state, and local organizations around outreach and enrollment best practices, resource creation, and responding to issues that come up in the field. Click here for links to key organizations focused on outreach and enrollment and for NACHC resources on O&E.
