The 2017 open enrollment period to apply for health insurance coverage for 2018 will be from November 1 to December 15. This year’s open enrollment period is shorter than it has been in the past, and the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the Washington Health Benefit Exchange have resources to help you inform your communities of this year’s changes and the importance of enrolling in a health insurance plan, as well as logistical details and tips for renewing coverage.
Resources from the AHA include enrollment videos you can share, an open enrollment digital toolkit, talking points, fact sheets and more. Also, use the hashtag #GetCovered to join the larger conversation on social media. (Mary Kay Clunies-Ross)
