“Of all the forms of inequality,
injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
Second Convention of the Medical Committee for Human Rights,
Chicago, March 25, 1966
As of today, January 20th, only 71 days will remain to help enroll uninsured Mainers into an affordable health insurance plan. The deadline is March 31, 2014. Here are some simple actions you can take to help a neighbor or loved one get the health insurance coverage they need:
- Go to Healthcare.gov at https://www.healthcare.gov/ to find an affordable plan;
- Go to enroll207.com to find free help in your zip code area at http://www.enroll207.com/locator/
- Call our toll-free Consumer Assistance HelpLine at 1-800-965-7476 and visit our web site at http://www.mainecahc.org/ for more information.
Your action, like those of Dr. King, to help someone – maybe someone you don’t even know – to understand how to enroll could save their life. Take action! Honor Dr. King!
