Affordable Care Act enrollment ends for 2014 on March 31, and we want to make sure that young people and college students are evaluating their options and enrolling in plans that fit their needs, their budgets, and their lifestyles. Under the ACA, more options than ever exist within a broad range of prices, and coverage has improved – including contraceptive coverage with no co-pays or deductibles and a new mandate on fully-covered preventive and maternity care in every plan. Women are also no longer charged higher prices for coverage just because they’re women.
The ACA is a huge victory for young people, and we want to celebrate it – so we’re inviting your group to host an #ACAParty with us from March 3-7 and bring care to your campus!
To host an event, you simply need some laptops for live enrollment and maybe some pizza – and the rest is up to you! We’ve already prepared everything you’ll need to put an enrollment event together on your campus: downloadable and editable posters, postcards, media advisories, party guides, and more. Once you’ve set a date, just fill us in online to get access to all of the materials we’ve put together and get crackin’ on putting your party together. (Don’t worry if the event date hasn’t been confirmed yet by your campus – just let us know your ideal date to gain access.)
Once you register your group as an #ACAParty hosting organization, we’ll get you in touch with the right organizer, give you access to our super-secret host portal, connect you to local navigators who are knowledgeable about new plans and guidelines, and more. We’re even hosting an ongoing social media photo contest so your group can win cool feminist prize packs while you’re doing good for your campus community.
We’re linking every campus event into our action to demand that the Supreme Court uphold the ACA’s contraception guarantee, so every #ACAparty will be an integral part in upholding the end to sexist double-standards in care that went on for so long before the ACA was implemented.
We’re excited to see folks getting covered across the nation once March rolls around, and we hope you’re able to be in on the action. If you have any questions about the #ACAParty project, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org; to sign up and see the materials in our super-secret host portal, simply fill out our form online.
Let’s get the party started!
