The Affordable Care Act Turns 3!

A Message from APIAHF:

The Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum has just released The Affordable Care Act Turns 3:  A Planning and Educational Toolkit for Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Communities.

This year’s birthday activities will highlight the important role that community groups play in the public education process. Celebrate the ACA’s third birthday on March 23, 2013, by educating your community members about the new coverage options that will help up 1 in 10 Asian Americans and 1 in 8 Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders gain health insurance. We know that equipping our communities with the right tools will help them benefit from the law. Open enrollment for the new health insurance marketplaces will begin on October 1, 2013, so now is the time to start educating our communities, especially those who are limited English proficient, immigrant and low-income.

For more details on what you can do to celebrate the Affordable Care Act please visit our ACA Turns 3 website and download the following resources:
