Understanding the new Health Insurance Marketplace can feel a lot like piecing together a puzzle. Despite the setbacks, the Marketplace is up and running. For community groups and advocates, it’s time to help our communities shop for health coverage that fits their many needs. For older adults, it’s time to get covered.
To make it simple, the Diverse Elders Coalition has created a simple flyer, “Why the ACA Matters to Our Communities,” which offers step-by-step instructions for enrolling in the Marketplace, as well as a rationale for the Affordable Care Act (commonly known as the ACA or Obamacare) and older people of color, LGBT older people and older immigrants. It’s available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese.
Our member organization, Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) has also created a special flyer on why the ACA matters to LGBT elders. Download here.
- Share this flyer with older people—age 50 and older—in your life to effectively explain how they can apply for health insurance
- Print this flyer for presentations, events or meetings to educate other leaders about why the ACA matters to older people of color, LGBT elders and older immigrants.
