Let’s Get Ready for Obamacare: Healthcare Enrollment Project
What is Obamacare?
The Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is the greatest expansion of healthcare in 50 years. In California alone, five million uninsured people will become eligible for free and low-cost healthcare coverage in 2014. Obamacare ends annual and lifetime caps for health plans, allows children to stay on their parents’ health plan until age 26, and requires that all health plans cover hospitalization, prescription drugs, preventive care, emergency services, pediatric care, and much more.
What is SEIU-UHW doing about Obamacare?
Healthcare workers are uniquely qualified to improve wellness in our communities–and SEIU-UHW members are doing just that by connecting California families to Obamacare. For over a year, we’ve been hosting enrollment fairs, knocking on doors, and canvassing our communities to ensure that every single person who is eligible for healthcare under Obamacare gets covered. Check out the great work we’ve already done in Southern California!
