Statewide Volunteer Training – Help Get Texas Covered!

Texas has the highest rate of uninsured in the country. With more than 4 million uninsured Texans eligible for health coverage through the health insurance marketplace—and the fact Deanne and Ken at trainingthat most of them can get help paying for coverage, due the financial assistance that’s here (which many, unfortunately still don’t know about it)—we’ve got a big job to do in Texas.

March 31st is the last day to enroll in coverage, and it’s coming up fast. So many people can get health coverage, but still so many still have no idea that this is an option for them. Roughly 120,000 Texans enrolled by the end of last year, and 3 out of 4 of them got help paying for coverage.

March 1st will kick off 31 days of a flurry of outreach. Be part of the historic opportunity to get Texans covered.  Join these trainings and you will develop your skills in outreach, learn how to talk to consumers about their options, and help make history by changing the lives of uninsured Texans.

February 22nd is Get Covered Training Day. Join us at one of the trainings below. Click on the link next to the event nearest you to RSVP.
