USICH Promotes ACA Benefits to the Homeless

With the extensive media attention on Healthcare.gov, many are wondering if the arduous process is worth navigating. The National Health Care for the Homeless Council has developed factsheets, toolkits, and other enrollment materials to help providers encourage people experiencing homelessness to apply. The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) has also outlined the benefits of the Medicaid expansion for the homeless, and recently posted an open letter to Continuum of Cares and Ten-Year Plan Leaders on how to leverage the Affordable Care Act in ending homelessness efforts. Please be sure to utilize these tools to help promote registration for those who are most in need.
