Health Center Outreach and Enrollment Activities
The second open enrollment period for health insurance officially ended on February 15, 2015, and once again community health centers were at the epicenter of the effort to enroll the uninsured into health care coverage.
Nearly 1,200 health centers currently receive ongoing funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to conduct outreach and enrollment (O&E) assistance activites in their service areas. Many health centers and primary care associations receive funding from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to support Navigator outreach and enrollment activities. NACHC is providing a range of support on O&E activities:
