Out2Enroll is a national initiative launched in September 2013 to connect our communities—LGBTQ 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 LGBTQ equality issue. Why? Because for too long, too many LGBTQ 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 Ben Panico (Ben@Out2Enroll.org) and Kellan Baker (Kellan@Out2Enroll.org). Other Out2Enroll cofounders include Kellan Baker, Katie Keith, Andrew Cray, and Chris Labonte.
The diverse members of our Advisory Committee—leading organizations dedicated to achieving LGBTQ equality, improving access to health insurance and health care, and building community resources and power—advise us on reaching LGBT people across the country.
