SAMHSA Offers Resources for Advocates and Providers
Everyone working to end homelessness knows someone who is experiencing homelessness who can benefit from health coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
On Tuesday, October 1, 2013, a new Health Insurance Marketplace will open for every state, which means all people experiencing homelessness will be able to find out what benefits they will be eligible for.
“Getting Ready for the Health Insurance Marketplace,” is a 30-minute online presentation that comes with an assortment of communications resources: brochures, fact sheets, videos, posters, flyers, and more.
The toolkit covers:
The health care law and how it helps people with mental and substance use disorders;
How to use the Health Insurance Marketplace; and
How to get the word out to uninsured individuals in your communities.
