Out2Enroll is a national initiative launched in September 2013 to connect our communities—LGBT people and our families, friends, and allies—with the new health insurance coverage options available under the Affordable Care Act.
We believe that access to quality, affordable coverage is an LGBT equality issue. Why? Because for too long, too many LGBT people have had to go without access to the coverage and care we need to keep ourselves, our families, and our communities healthy. But the Affordable Care Act is making important changes—and Out2Enroll wants to make sure that the health reform law’s benefits reach everyone who needs them.
We pride ourselves on diversity, and our team includes individuals who identify as LGBTQ, as well as awesome allies. Out2Enroll is led by Katie Keith (Katie@Out2Enroll.org) with the help of Ben Panico (Ben@Out2Enroll.org). Other Out2Enroll cofounders include Kellan Baker, Andrew Cray, and Chris Labonte.
The diverse members of our Advisory Committee—leading organizations dedicated to achieving LGBT equality, improving access to health insurance and health care, and building community resources and power—advise us on reaching LGBT people across the country.
