The Affordable Care Act open enrollment period is shortened. Please share this important enrollment

The open enrollment period for the health insurance marketplace is significantly shorter this year — from November 1 to December 15, 2017.
The Trump administration has also cut funding for advertising and enrollment assistance.
Social workers should share enrollment information with clients, families, friends and communities to bring awareness to the narrow enrollment window. Each of us can do our part to help distribute this important information!
