Get Covered: An Assist from Mayor Kevin Johnson

Sacramento Mayor and former NBA star Kevin Johnson explains why it's important to sign up for affordable health insurance.

As a former NBA point guard, I know a thing or two about assists. And with just over a month of open enrollment left, I know how important it is to assist one another and reach out to friends, family, and neighbors to let them know that they need to get covered.

In my city of Sacramento and across the country, millions of Americans have already taken the time to look out for their health and enroll in coverage.

But we still have lots of work left to do in the coming weeks to make sure everyone out there knows their options and gets the health insurance they need.

As an athlete and mayor, I know how important it is to prepare for the unexpected. It’s important for folks to get covered so they can get the care they need without losing everything they’ve worked hard for.

Take a look at my video and visit to explore your options and sign up for coverage. Folks can still enroll through March 31, so help get the word out to people in your community that it’s not too late to get covered.
