Campaign encourages healthcare enrollment as deadline looms

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

With only two weeks remaining until open enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace ends, a campaign is traveling across the country to encourage uninsured Americans to get covered.

The Countdown to get Covered Bus Tour campaign on Monday traveled to Cincinnati. It's a part of what Get Covered America is calling a final blitz to connect consumers with information and resources to get covered.

The tour crew participated in an event held at Word of Deliverance Ministries along with faith leaders from around the city called "Pray for a Healthy Cincinnati."

Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services spoke with FOX19 and said Ohio leaders, including Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley, have been mobilizing efforts to encourage sign ups. Only 79,000 Ohioans have signed up for private insurance through healthcare.gov, with 4.2 million people signing up nationwide, according to Sebelius.

Organizations around the Tri-State have representatives that will assist citizens with signing up. Whether you need help navigating the web site or filling out the online forms, the following local organizations say they can help out. 

  • Cincinnati Health Department: 513-357-7320
  • Community Impact, Inc: 513-319-3325
  • Freestore Foodbank: 513-381-2247
  • Christian Community Health Services: 513-381-2247
