Enroll Now! Help Us Spread the Word!

It is open enrollment season for health insurance through December 15! Travis County’s health care district, Central Health is here to help folks navigate the 2019 Affordable Care Act (ACA).

At the bottom of this post, we’ve included some resources for you to help us spread the word. Please post or email the enclosed flyers, and help us tell everyone that ACA is still going strong and that local help is available for sign up.

For more information, check the Central Health enrollment website and their ACA page, or call 2-1-1 to connect to in-person assistance to answer questions, schedule an appointment for enrollment assistance at one of the many locations, and also to learn about the offer for free rides to appointments.

Free Lyft to Enroll

Travis County residents who still need to sign up for health insurance can now hail a free ride from Lyft to an enrollment site, thanks to a new program sponsored by the county’s health care district, Central Health, and United Way for Greater Austin.

Open enrollment for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act runs until Dec. 15. For more information, residents should visit www.CentralHealth.net/enroll-atx.

Residents may call United Way at 2-1-1 from 7:30am to 6pm every weekday through Dec. 14 to schedule a free appointment with an enrollment counselor at the location closest to them as well as to arrange a free, round-trip Lyft ride. Bilingual enrollment specialists are available to assist Spanish-speaking residents.
