ALL BLACK WOMEN DESERVE AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE
Access to quality, affordable health care is a basic human right, regardless of race, gender, income or zip code. Black women experience numerous health disparities because Black women have often faced significant barriers to accessing quality and affordable health care. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been and continues to be critical in moving towards the elimination of health disparities faced by Black women and their families.
Since the implementation of the ACA, uninsured rate for Black women dropped by more than 40 percent. Let’s decrease the uninsured rate by even more this year by spreading the word to Black women about Open Enrollment through BWHI’s #EnrollHer17 campaign from now until December 15, 2017.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TODAY?
Spread the word on social media, use hashtags #EnrollHer 17, #GetCovered and #EnrollByDec15 to let people know HealthCare.Gov is open for business!
