Thursday, February 11th, 2016
A big “THANK YOU!” goes to Governor McAuliffe and Secretary Hazel. Their leadership and support of efforts to increase access to affordable health coverage throughout Virginia made it possible to achieve such strong enrollment numbers in the Health Insurance Marketplace.
“Having access to health care coverage is critical as we work toward improving the health of all Virginians,” said Secretary of Health and Human Resources Dr. Bill Hazel. “Thanks are due especially to the Virginia Community Healthcare Association, which developed a network of assisters across the state, and the Virginia Poverty Law Center, which worked on outreach and education, and also provided dedicated assisters.”
VPLC and ENROLL! Virginia also would like to thank and congratulate all of the great organizations that partnered with us to help ensure that as many Virginians as possible were able to get free and unbiased in-person help with their Marketplace applications.
