Build Your Team
Build your team: Reach out to your family, friends and neighbors to see who is interested in helping - you can even start a Facebook event or group and invite your friends. NPAF will be there to support you or to connect you with other interested volunteers in your area.
Figure out the best spots to hit
We want to make sure that if you’re uninsured, you’ll see reminders wherever you go that Open Enrollment is about to start. Head to places in your community where there’s a lot of foot traffic. Some of the best places to go include grocery stores, laundromats, community health centers, pharmacies, community colleges and places of worship.
Make a Plan
Make a plan: Once you’ve figured out where you want to go, set a date and time for when you’ll go (make sure to go before November 1!), who will go with you, and who you should speak to (for instance, manager or the pastor).
Know the Facts
Make sure you know if your state runs their own exchange (e.g., Covered California) or if it’s a HealthCare.gov state (i.e., federal government is managing enrollment).
Print Out Materials
We'll be continuously updating our #GetCovered page with more resources for you to print out and distribute. In addition to the Get America Covered materials, we'll have materials from CMS and from Patient Advocate Foundation. They include fact sheets, one-pagers and complete guides to choosing your insurance.
