With families coming together over the next month, President Obama and Organizing for America have arranged a website to guide discussions between individuals without insurance and their concerned family members. The site--complete with printable tips--includes such information as:
Start by asking: “Have you thought about signing up for health insurance on the new marketplace?”
Offer to walk them through it: “Would you like to take some time with me to sign up right now?”
Ask them to make a plan, and commit to it: “When do you plan on signing up?”
Don’t forget to follow up: “Have you signed up yet?”
It further provides information on how to respond to common misconceptions.
- Do you believe the website will be effective? Why or why not?
