Marketplace Webinar – Your Money, Your Goals
Please join us for a two-part webinar series on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Your Money, Your Goals toolkit.

This webinar series will focus on simple cash flow and other tools, created in the Your Money, Your Goals toolkit, which Navigators, certified application counselors, and others can use when helping consumers enroll in health coverage. Each webinar will also include Marketplace updates.

Got Coverage? Next Steps in Using Your Health Insurance
(2:00 pm CDT, 1:00 pm MDT, Noon PDT)
Many people now have health insurance but may not know how to use it. This webinar will discuss how to read your insurance card, how to find a doctor, what you need to know in making an appointment and what to do in case you have a health emergency. Key terms will be discussed as well as recommended health screenings. We will highlight the Coverage to Care materials on health insurance literacy during the webinar. We will also discuss how faith and other community-based organizations are using these tools to help those in their congregations and communities.
Special Enrollment Periods and Resources for the Uninsured
(2:00 pm CDT, 1:00 pm MDT, Noon PDT)
Individuals and families can enroll in the Health Insurance Marketplace during special enrollment periods if they experience certain circumstances. Special Enrollment Period circumstances include graduating from college and losing health insurance, getting married or divorced or having a baby, losing employer insurance or turning 26 and losing coverage on a parent’s health plan. Join this webinar to learn more about special enrollment periods and how to enroll in the Health Insurance Marketplace. For those who are uninsured and don’t qualify for the special enrollment period, learn what resources are available and when to enroll in the Health Insurance Marketplace.
Best Practices in ACA Outreach and Enrollment

Learn from faith leaders who have conducted successful outreach and enrollment campaigns before and during open enrollment. On October 8, we will hear from Abrar Quader from the Compassionate Care Network (CCN) which helped enroll people who are Muslim, Hindu and Sikh. CCN received a navigator grant from the Illinois state marketplace.
Webinar on Healthy Communities and Healthy Congregations
Opening Congregational Doors to Community Needs
(11:30 a.m. CST, 10:30 a.m. MST, 9:30 a.m. PST)
As faith and community organizations place a greater emphasis on the health and wellness of their communities and neighborhoods, they are making their playgrounds, meeting rooms, parish halls, and classrooms available for the health needs of their neighbors. Join us and learn about a network of congregations who have partnered with Bon Secours Health System to regularly host a primary care clinic for the uninsured in their neighborhoods in Richmond, VA. We'll also hear about resources created by ChangeLab Solutions that highlight faith-based organizations that are embracing “shared use” of their facilities and programs to help create and sustain healthy congregations and communities
