Volunteers step in to help Arizonans sign up for healthcare

With significant cuts made to the Affordable Care Act’s media outreach, volunteers are stepping in to help people sign up for healthcare.

More than ninety-percent of the budget for media outreach has been cut, according to Vitalyst Health Foundation President Suzanne Pfister, making it difficult for people to get the assistance they need to sign up for healthcare. To offset this drop in financing, members of groups such as the Cover Arizona Coalition, are volunteering their time to help people get the resources they need to make educated decisions regarding healthcare.

As of January, more than 180,000 Arizona residents are enrolled in the federal healthcare marketplace.
