Health and Human Services & Out2Enroll

Friday, June 10

2:00 – 3:30 PM ET

With the implementation of section 1557 of the ACA, understanding the nuances of LGBT enrollment is more important than ever. Section 1557 prohibits discrimination based on sex – specifically gender identity and sex stereotyping – in all health programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance through HHS, are administered through HHS, or are established under Title 1 of the ACA. For more on the implications of section 1557, click here.

Friday’s webinar is a collaboration between HHS and Out2Enroll and will cover reaching and assisting LGBT communities. The webinar is open to Navigators, In-Person Assisters (IPAs), and Certified Application Counselors (CACs).

LGBT Health Factsheets

GHF is excited to continue our partnership with Georgia Equality for another year. We will be working together to better understand health care and health insurance discrimination that transgender individuals in Georgia have experienced. Additionally, through this partnership we’ve created a series of fact sheets for the LGBT community. We will be updating them in the coming months with 1557 information.
