ASU hosts healthcare event

A statewide organization made a stop in Albany Thursday to educate folks about how to get health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Representatives from "Get Covered America" are traveling the state, making sure people are ready for the next open enrollment period, which starts November 15th.

Stakeholders in the community, navigators and care providers came together at Albany State University to learn ways to get folks to enroll, especially young adults.

"31 percent of the 317,000 that came in were in the 18 to 34 age group. And so just getting ahead in the game and making sure that folks know the best practices for reaching them," said Dante McKay, the state director for Get Covered America.

The enrollment period is from November 15 through February 15, 2015.
