Wow — 1,912,394

That’s the number of people in Florida who enrolled in an Affordable Care Act Health Insurance plan for 2020.  The enrollment period ran from November 1, 2019, to December 15, 2019.  During that period, our Healthcare Issue Group assisted Epilepsy Florida, which had the lead navigator contract, by distributing some 3000 of their fliers.  We delivered or sent fliers to churches, synagogues, community centers, etc. and to every Palm Beach County public library.  We also shared it with thousands of people on social media. The nearly two million enrollees were the highest of any state in the nation, and it marked a big increase from last year.  We extend big thanks to our Healthcare team (a few of whom are pictured) and kudos as well to Joyce Sullivan and her daughter, Marci Ball-Elordi, who assisted with printing.  And to Pam Maldonado who assisted with the distribution of fliers at registration drives and shared it in Spanish with Latin Vision radio station.

Thank you to all,

Nancy Gau, Healthcare Chair
