Families USA spearheaded formation of Enroll America in 2010 to identify newly eligible adults for enrollment in expanded health insurance coverage made possible by the Affordable Care Act. Mathematica is conducting a rigorous evaluation that includes qualitative and quantitative assessments. For its first outreach campaign, Enroll America built infrastructure in 11 states (Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas), training staff and engaging volunteers and local partners in outreach to consumers. Areas of recommendation for the second enrollment period include:

  • Expand the number of consumer assistance counselors.

  • Reconsider how resources are allocated in states that have geographically dispersed uninsured.

  • Continue to place a high priority on seeking partnerships, especially with groups connected to key uninsured constituencies.
