Health Happens in Libraries: Looking Ahead to 2015 Open Enrollment

This webinar will provide an overview of the 2015 open enrollment period and review opportunities to connect community members to marketplace information through library service priorities and partnerships.

This event has passed.

Public libraries played an active role in the initial enrollment in the federal health insurance marketplace that led to over eight million people receiving health care coverage. With the next open enrollment period coming up (November 15, 2014 – February 15, 2015), there are more opportunities for libraries to collaborate with local partners to provide health information outreach and education in their communities.

In this webinar, you’ll get an overview of objectives and resources for the 2015 open enrollment period from representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). You’ll learn about the Coverage to Care initiative, which supports individuals in learning how to utilize health coverage, and review opportunities to connect community members to marketplace information through library service priorities and partnerships.
