Approximately 1.9 million Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs) are projected to benefit from new options for health insurance coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. With the open enrollment period for coverage in 2014 ending on March 31, 2014, many are still unaware of the health coverage options available to them through the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
We invite you to join Dr. Howard Koh, Assistant Secretary for Health (HHS), Meena Seshamani, Deputy Director in the Office of Health Reform, and community leaders as they answer your #ACA questions.
Please join us so you can learn more about the opportunities to improve the health of the AAPI community and find out how to #GetCovered by March 31, 2014.
