Albright College has joined the White House Healthy Campus Challenge. The goal of the Challenge is to engage college and university campuses across the country in the enrollment efforts resulting from the Affordable Care Act.

Did you know that nearly 1 out of every 5 young adults does not have any form of health insurance?

Nation Youth Enrollment Day is growing momentum across the nation to have young people “get covered” through the Affordable Care Act. National Youth Enrollment Day is December 10th. You can sign up at https://www.getcoveredamerica.org.

Please remember these important dates:

  • December 10th - National Youth Enrollment Day
  • December 15th - the last day to enroll to have coverage starting January 1, 2017 as well as the final day that 2016 enrollees can change their policy before being “auto-reenrolled” in their previous plan.

Please direct all questions to the link provided on the website listed above or call the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.
