The White House announced today that over 7 million people enrolled in health coverage under the Affordable Care Act before the March 31 deadline. Stones’ Phones hosted many telephone town halls with a diverse array of organizations in attempt to sign up the uninsured for health coverage in the Affordable Care Act exchanges and educate people on the law.
On the first day of enrollment, Stones’ Phones hosted a telephone town hall for SEIU Florida on what the Affordable Care Act means for Floridians and how to obtain health insurance. Since then, we have partnered with local chapters of women’s organizations to help schedule appointments to speak with Affordable Care Act marketplaces, held bilingual conversations to reach out to Spanish speakers, worked with members of Congress to reach out to their constituents to get them info on the Affordable Care Act, and even collaborated directly with state health insurance exchanges, all an effort to enroll as many Americans as possible in health coverage all through the medium of telephone town halls.
As part of a last drive to boost enrollment, we also hosted telephone town halls for MomsRising and Small Business Majority in the days leading up to the deadline, which featured remarks by the Second Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.
Stones’ Phones is a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act and we are proud to have been a part of the push to bring health insurance and peace of mind to millions of Americans.
