Two Utah Organizations Receive CMS Grant to Continue Providing In-Person Assistance for ACA Enrollment

Two organizations that focus on access to health care have received a continuation grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to continue to provide in-person assistance for those needing help enrolling in the Affordable Care Act health insurance Marketplace.

Utah recipients are: 
  • Utah Health Policy Project: The Utah Health Policy Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to lasting solutions to the crisis of the uninsured and rising health care costs. The Utah Health Policy Project served as a 2013 Navigator grantee and will continue the Take Care Utah Navigator Hub that connects nonprofit community-based organizations with resources on health coverage options. 
  • Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake: Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake will target tribal and urban American Indian (AI) members of the Ute Tribe of the Ouray and Uintah Reservation, the Confederated Tribe of the Goshutes of Ibapah, and the Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UICSL) who reside along the Utah’s Wasatch Front. It plans to conduct outreach at the Indian Training & Education Center, and by making regular visits to the Native American Trading Post, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, and halfway homes.
The Open Enrollment period for 2015 coverage is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015.  Coverage can start as soon as January 1, 2015.  Go to healthcare.gov for more information.
