This past weekend CitySquare joined Friendship West Baptist Church, LULAC and several other organizations in the efforts to reach young people to educate them about the Affordable Care Act. The ACA is heavily dependent upon the enrollment of young people in order to maintain its affordability.
At CitySquare headquarters (CityWalk@Akard, 511 Akard) volunteers went to Klyde Warren Park providing information and bringing many back to CityWalk to provide even more information on President Barack Obama's signature legislation.
What we saw in our efforts is in line with what's happening across the country...."Enrollment in the federal health insurance marketplace continued to steadily climb in January, according to data the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released Wednesday. In January, another 89,500 Texans selected a health plan on the insurance marketplace created by the Affordable Care Act, the department reported."
