March 2014 | Forward Initiative's Strong Families
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) enrollment deadline was March 31, 2014. There are a number of LGBT-specific resources available for you and your patients or clients to learn more about the ACA and how to get healthcare insurance coverage.
Where to Start, What to Ask: A Guide for LGBT People Choosing Health Care Plans, developed by Strong Families, is a guide that can help you help your patients, clients, friends and family:
- Evaluate their healthcare needs,
- Navigate new insurance options and
- Choose the best plan for them.
Access to affordable health insurance can help address the health disparities that exist in the LGBT community, can provide critical preventative care widely and can ensure all individuals and families can get the care they need without going bankrupt.
