GCA Organizers and Volunteers Honor MLK’s Legacy During Weekend of Action
January 24, 2014
This Martin Luther King Weekend of Action, Get Covered America Organizers and volunteers honored MLK’s legacy of activism and equality by holding events across the state to provide outreach and education on the Affordable Care Act.
In a time when millions of American’s have to choose between putting food on the table and purchasing much needed medication, the Get Covered America campaign is helping consumers find new options. Now, they don’t have to neglect preventative care due to the inability to afford quality care.
During the Martin Luther King Weekend of Action, Get Covered America Organizers and volunteers honored MLK’s legacy of activism and equality by holding events across the state; providing outreach and education on the Affordable Care Act. Gone are the days of being discriminated based on preexisting conditions as we are among a monumental time in our nation’s history with access to the health insurance Marketplace.
“In January, over a hundred and fifty thousand Floridian’s gained access to affordable care that was never an option for them before. Get Covered America continues to honor Dr. King’s legacy by empowering consumers to take action for their health care,” said State Director Nicholas Duran. “Many consumers have previously had to endure health plans that disqualified patients based on preexisting conditions or charge more just because of a patients gender. That is no longer the case and it’s our duty to help those that have faced this inequality by helping them find the coverage that fits their needs and budget.”
In Miami, the community took the message in to their own hands by reminding the community to #getcovered!
