New Coalition Working To Increase Coverage Among Americans.

The Los Angeles Times (9/15, Levey) reports, “Giving a boost to the new healthcare law, a coalition of hospitals, insurers, drug makers and consumer advocates is joining a multimillion-dollar campaign to get Americans signed up for health insurance starting in 2014.” This “new nonprofit group, called Enroll America, plans a state-by-state effort to publicize the expanded availability of health coverage and to help state leaders put in place procedures to simplify enrollment.” Enroll America said on Wednesday “that 42 companies and organizations had signed on to the effort, including several industry leaders such as Aetna, Express Scripts and Teva Pharmaceuticals.” Some of the other members are “AARP, the Catholic Health Assn. of the United States, Kaiser Permanente, the American Nurses Assn. and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.”
