OE7 IS APPROACHING
Now that fall is right around the corner, Open Enrollment Year 7 (OE7) is just weeks away and preparation for OE7 is underway. As part of our work for OE7, AAHD is proud to announce that we will be working with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) again to provide technical assistance to navigators and other health insurance enrollment assisters. As part of this work, CBPP will once again be conducting its fall “Beyond the Basics” webinar series and they have announced the schedule for the first six of these webinars. For the full list of dates and times for the webinars as well as links to register, check out our news item. Also, be on the lookout for news on future webinars with CBPP as we will be conducting one for them addressing disability and health insurance enrollment.
