Open enrollment in the health insurance marketplace starts November 1st. Are you ready to help your patients?

Doctors, medical students, and other health care providers play an important role in getting uninsured patients connected to health insurance. Over 17 million Americans have gotten covered through the new health insurance options created by the Affordable Care Act and the uninsured rate is at a record low. But 10 million people who qualify for health insurance remain uninsured. 

Doctors for America members are doing their part. We are giving presentations in churches and community colleges, handing out fliers in clinics and hospitals, calling uninsured individuals to encourage them to enroll, and using media and social media to get the word out.
