Sign Up for ACA Health Coverage by Feb. 15, 2015

For your new health coverage to be effective on Feb. 1, 2015, you must sign up by Thursday, January 15.

Those who enroll by Feb. 15, will get coverage starting March 1, 2015.

People who qualify for Medicaid can sign up at any point during the year.

"Of the 19,402 new customers signed up for plans through the exchange, 44 percent selected ConnectiCare and 31 percent chose plans offered by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield."

Remember to get help from an objective 3rd party to select the plan that meets you needs.  Do NOT get pressured into signing up for a plan unless you fully understand the benefits and limitations.  Once you have signed up for a plan and it goes into effect, you cannot get out until the next open enrollment period. This applies to plans through the CT Exchange. 

Some plans are more restrictive than others.  Some have higher co-pays and/or deductibles.  Be sure to inquire about keeping your doctors, or being able to select from a wide array of providers. If you have existing care providers and want to continue working with those providers, you need to check to ensure they are in the insurer's network.

Regardless of the misleading news items and some media reports, millions of Americans are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act.  The Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, says he wants to completely repeal the ACA; yet, in his home state more that 500,000 people have signed up for the ACA.  In Kentucky the program is called Kentucky Kynect.  The web site through which residents sign up ‘was paid for by a $200-and-some-odd-million grant from the federal government.’ You can read more about that at the link below.  We include this information to point out that even some who oppose the ACA recognize its benefits.

Dismantling Structural Racism in Community Development Finance

In an opinion piece for ImpactAlpha, LISC COO Annie Donovan draws on the expertise she honed as head of the CDFI Fund to illustrate the layered ways that BIPOC community development entities are locked out of federal tax credit allocations and other resources. "The disproportionate results reflect the same deeply seated structural barriers that prevent minority-owned enterprises from accessing credit in other parts of the economy," she writes, explaining that Congress, and the rest of us, must help remedy this inequity. 

LISC CEO: Investing in Black-owned Businesses is Good for America

In a lively Q&A with Tony Lawson, co-founder of ShoppeBlack, LISC's CEO Maurice A. Jones talks about the many levels of impact that investing in black-owned small businesses can have on our country's wellbeing. The intentional effort that created the racial health and wealth gap can only be undone through intentional effort, he explains—a remedy that ultimately boosts everyone's standard of living.

An Accurate Census Count is Imperative for America. Here’s Why.

Matt Josephs, LISC SVP and head of the organization’s policy team, makes the urgent case for why a fair and accurate census count is so important for the health and wellbeing of our communities. Anything short of that undermines equity and thwarts our democratic process. Every one of us, he writes, has a role to play in making sure the census is successful.
