Reaching Out and Assisting LGBT Communities During Open Enrollment

When: Tuesday November 4, 2014, 9:30am – 11:30am

Where: Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers – 700 E. Jefferson St. Suite 100, Phoenix AZ 85034 or via webinar by logging on to: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/join/845125278 (pre registration is not required)

 Who should attend: navigators, certified application counselors, and other consumer assistance personnel

 Participants will learn how to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people get the coverage they need. Get answers to LGBT-specific enrollment questions about recently passed same-sex marriage in Arizona and transgender-specific exclusions. The training includes:

  • An introduction to key LGBT terms and concepts;
  • Answers to commonly asked LGBT-specific enrollment questions;
  • An overview of research-based ways to effectively promote LGBT outreach and enrollment;
  • An interactive discussion aided by case study scenarios based on the experiences of same-sex couples, people with HIV, and transgender people in enrollment; and
  • A robust question-and-answer session.

As a bonus, participant organizations have the option of being listed on Out2Enroll’s new online locator tool. The tool allows LGBT community members to enter their zip code and find culturally competent assisters that can help them get covered.
