D.C. Makes Last-Minute Outreach Push at ACA Deadline

On the final weekend before the Jan. 31 enrollment deadline for the latest round of the Affordable Care Act — and possibly before the Trump administration repeals Barack Obama’s signature health care law — DC Health Link will crisscross DC to make sure residents in high uninsured areas have the opportunity to enroll in quality, affordable health insurance.

DC Health Link began Saturday a 24-Hour Plus Enrollment Marathon Relay and partnering with local businesses, city leaders, and civic groups to offer District residents free one-on-one enrollment help for over 24 hours at different locations throughout the District to help residents get covered before the Open Enrollment Period ends.

DC Health Link assisters will be available around the clock from one enrollment site to the next, carrying into Sunday afternoon.

DC Health Link representatives and staff joined D.C. Councilman Brandon Todd (Ward 4), community advocates and local volunteers in going door to door in neighborhoods with higher uninsured populations to educate residents about the Affordable Care Act and health insurance options through DC Health Link, the District’s online health insurance marketplace.
