Outreach and Enrollment

The 2017 Open Enrollment period – the fourth open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act – officially began on November 1, 2016, and extends until January 31, 2017.

Over 1,300 health centers currently receive ongoing funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to conduct outreach and enrollment (O&E) assistance activites. Prior to the start of OE4, community health centers have provided over 18 million assists to individuals seeking health insurance coverage since July 2013.

NACHC has generated a series of webinars, case studies, and podcasts on O&E, and convenved meetings of primary care association (PCA) O&E staff and health center staff, thanks in part to funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
