In the past year, Americans from all walks of life turned to public libraries to learn more information about the federal health insurance marketplace. With the next open enrollment period spanning November 15, 2014 — February 15, 2015, there are more opportunities for libraries learn more about the health marketplace.
On September 24, 2014, WebJunction will offer a free webinar on the Affordable Care Act (Register now). This webinar will provide an overview of the 2015 open enrollment period and review opportunities to connect community members to health marketplace information through library service priorities and partnerships.
In this webinar, participants will receive an overview of objectives and resources for the 2015 open enrollment period from representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Webinar participants will 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. Participate in the conversation online with the hashtags #wjwebinar and #libs4health.
