SEA Continues to Help Get Granite Staters Covered

ACA Enrollment Fairs Continue Around State

While the rollout of the Affordable Care Act has clearly not gone as smoothly as one would like, the SEA remains dedicated to its plan to make sure all Granite Staters have access to quality, affordable health care.

While many of our members have insurance through their employers, part-time workers and adjunct professors must purchase their own. No doubt members also have friends and family who need coverage, too. Knowing that, SEA field staff members have been hosting health care enrollment fairs since the beginning of November. Those fairs will continue through March of 2014.

Problems with the federal Marketplace website, healthcare.gov, highlight the need for organizations that can help with applying for coverage. The SEA was designated a certified application counselor organization, and staff members have been certified to help with the process.

The enrollment fair held last weekend in Portsmouth drew coverage from The Portsmouth Herald and Foster’s Daily Democrat, so word is starting to get out. But we need your help to continue to spread the word that these opportunities are available. Take a look at the list of upcoming enrollment fairs, and be sure to share with colleagues, friends or family who need health care coverage.
