Two Weeks Out: New Materials for Open Enrollment

Dear Partners,

We are just two weeks away from the start of the Affordable Care Act’s second open enrollment period. Across the country, state consumer health advocates and outreach and enrollment partners are gearing up for November 15th!

To support your efforts to inform consumers about health coverage options and share success stories from outreach, education and enrollment efforts, Community Catalyst and Spitfire Strategies have developed a communications toolkit: Getting Ready for Open Enrollment. We hope you can use our materials as the next phase of open enrollment gets underway:

  • Message Research Memo. This analysis includes the best messages for encouraging consumers to check out their options and renew their coverage.
  • Storybanking Toolkit. A set of tools to help engage your outreach and enrollment partners in story collection efforts and demonstrate the success of the ACA.
  • Communications Best Practices. Tips to help advocates amplify their messages and share their outreach and enrollment success stories.
  • Message Platform. Our messaging platform to promote your outreach, education and enrollment efforts.
  • Social Media Content. Social media posts for Facebook and Twitter to spread the word about what consumers should do to access and keep their available health coverage options. Additionally, check out these customizable infographics for state and federal marketplaces.  

We thank you and your partners for your on-the-ground efforts to help millions of Americans access and use their affordable health coverage. If you have any questions about these resources, please contact Christine Barber at

Thank you for your continued advocacy,

Community Catalyst Outreach, Education and Enrollment Team
