The Affordable Care Act provides millions of consumers with a new opportunity to obtain affordable, comprehensive health coverage. However, a majority of Americans have no idea that free or affordable coverage will be available to them, or that they can turn to people in their local community to get free help applying for coverage. Learn about Enroll America's national public education campaign “Get Covered America”, what's happening in your state, ways to get involved and best practices for getting consumers enrolled into health coverage in 2014.

Learning Areas:
