October 1st is almost here!
And with October comes open enrollment for the new health insurance plans offered through the Affordable Care Act exchange in your state.
So why do we need your help?
Well we want to do everything we can to make sure that uninsured South Dakotans know about how and where to sign up for health insurance under the exchange. So we will be phone banking at the Sioux Falls Planned Parenthood clinic on Wednesday evenings this fall starting October 9, 2013.
Can you sign up and give us a Wednesday or two of your fall to help us help all South Dakotans have the information they need to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act?
These phone banks are important because many people don’t realize that if they don’t sign up for health insurance they will potentially face a fine.
And even those South Dakotans who will be exempt from the fine due to falling in the area that would have been covered if South Dakota had chosen to expand Medicaid will still have to file a form in order to be exempt from that fine.
Email Megan at MWellner@PPMNS.org today to sign up for a phone bank shift or two today!
If you can’t help on Wednesdays due to conflict you can still help us by sharing this blog post and other social media posts about the phone banks! We also may look into the prospect of holding a phone bank on a Saturday afternoon if there is enough interest from volunteers--so please let Megan know if you’d be willing to come in for a few hours some Saturday afternoon!
