Indivisible Houston October General Meeting

We've been on the frontline for the fight to save the ACA and we still have work to do. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) enrollment period has been shortened (from 3 months to 6 weeks) and funding to advertise the deadlines has been cut by 90%. Spending on in-person enrollment assistance is also set to be cut by 41 percent from 2016 levels. This is another way the Trump administration and GOP are trying to kill the ACA. Our October meeting will feature a discussion about how the ACA enrollment process works and what we can all do to make sure that everyone who needs the ACA can access the information they need to have healthcare in the upcoming year. We will hear from experts on the frontline of these efforts. Our speakers will include: Melissa McChesney, Center for Public Policy Priorities Aurora Harris, Young Invincibles Melissa is a Houston-based independent consultant for the Center for Public Policy Priorities.

Melissa has worked extensively on both policy and practice related to outreach and enrollment into the marketplace, Medicaid, and CHIP. Since joining the Center in 2015 she has provided policy analysis, training, and troubleshooting to enrollment assisters across the state of Texas. Prior to joining the Center she worked as a Senior Policy Analyst for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission on the team that implemented eligibility changes to the Medicaid and CHIP programs required by the ACA. See you on the 29th. #ACAEnrollment #ACA #OpenEnrollment .
