More than 300,000 parents, veterans, and working adults are without access to health insurance. It doesn't have to be that way. Georgia is ready to close the coverage gap and we need your help to make it happen. Below you'll find resources, videos, and information on actions you can take. Access to health coverage is good for Georgia. And it's good for Georgians. 

A Thunderclap allows advocates to amplify their voice by sending the same message at the same time, creating a thunder of support across the web. This message of support will be sent out 30 minutes before the Premium Assistance Study Committee meeting on November 15th, letting the committee members know that the time to close the coverage gap is now!

But we can't do it without you. We need 100 supporters for the message to get send out. Stand with us and join this effort. Have questions about the Thunderclap? Email our Communications Manager, Anna Cullen.
