Cut Your Cost / Reduzca El Costo
With confusion threatening to undermine a key opportunity to insure millions of individuals in Texas, the healthcare action team of Dallas Area Interfaith (DAI) and Allied Communities of Tarrant (ACT) produced hundreds of thousands of booklets designed to clearly explain the Marketplace Enrollment aspect of the Affordable Care Act. US Health and Human Services Regional Director Marjorie Petty praised DAI’s strategy as “amazing” and “a model for others in the country.” DAI & ACT are bringing this booklet into member congregations and institutions to teach lay people about how the ACA could help them. Read the booklet to learn what CA could mean to you.
