Foundation Communities

Foundation-CommunitiesIn 2014, millions of Americans lacking health insurance became eligible to enroll in coverage under the Affordable Care Act. The enrollment application is long, confusing and completing the form inaccurately could result in families being charged heavy penalties. This is an exciting opportunity for volunteers with basic knowledge of taxes and/or health insurance to provide valuable assistance through our Insure Central Texas (ICT) program.

During the first enrollment period, our volunteers exceeded all our expectations when they enrolled more than 5,600 Central Texans in affordable health insurance plans! The open enrollment period for 2015 coverage is November 15, 2014, to February 15, 2015. We are seeking individuals who want to help us make history for a second year in a row.
