On Wednesday, April 29th, Enroll America announced that Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell will be the keynote speaker at their State of Enrollment 2015 National Conference in Washington, DC on June 11. At the conference, Secretary Burwell is expected to speak about lessons learned from the latest Affordable Care Act open enrollment period, and the challenges and opportunities she sees for the enrollment coalition in the coming years. Enroll America is the nation's leading health care enrollment coalition; last year, the annual State of Enrollment Conference drew hundreds of attendees from 48 states, including enrollment assisters, health-care providers, insurers, state and local governments, as well as faith and community-focused organizations.
With over two days of plenaries, workshops, trainings, and events, the conference offers valuable opportunities to learn and plan as we continue to help Americans enroll in and retain health coverage. Network with peers and partners from across the country as we take a critical look at what worked better during the second open enrollment period for the health insurance marketplaces, what barriers persist in enrolling and retaining consumers in health coverage, and how we can all work together to build and sustain momentum in our ongoing effort to get America covered for years to come!
