Week 5 of Open Enrollment!

The GEAR team hopes that everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and enjoyed a slight respite from the frenzy of Open Enrollment. We are now on the 5th week of Open Enrollment and it sounds like there is still a lot of interest from consumers looking to re-enroll in a plan from last year or shop around to see if they can find a new plan.

Save the Date: Join Us for a Webinar with FamiliesUSA

Families-USAFamiliesUSA will be hosting a webinar on best practices for post enrollment follow-up on December 10th at 2pm. It will be a great opportunity to learn about what enrollment assisters from around the country are doing to follow-up with consumers after they enroll. The webinar will also include a presentation from Whitney Griggs from Georgians for a Healthy Future and Jamila Young from Grady Health System. Use this link to register.



We Have Some Homework for You (Don’t worry, it’s just for fun)!

If you attended the Getting and Keeping Georgia Covered event in October, you may remember this from Don Rubin’s presentation on health literacy. We have two separate activities to help you think through ways to be more health literacy-friendly. If you complete both activities and send them to Whitney by the end of the week (December 5), we’ll send you a prize!

•  Activity 2: Draw This
