Historically, we know that LGBT individuals have been uninsured or underinsured at many times the rate of the general population. So in January 2014, as part of our LGBT health initiative, One Iowa worked to inform our community about the new benefits and anti-discrimination protections that the new law provides.
By the time open enrollment ended on March 31, One Iowa completed over 60 events in 3 months, speaking with hundreds of people throughout the state about how the LGBT community will benefit from the Affordable Care Act.
One Iowa was honored to be a part of the Open Enrollment team through the Iowa Insurance Division. This was a welcome opportunity to help Iowa’s LGBT community understand and access the Marketplace, and to engage in important conversations around health insurance and the Affordable Care Act.
Thank you to our supporters for helping to make this endeavor a successful one!
