Volunteer, Get Covered America
Bill Forbes is a volunteer with the Get Covered America campaign of Enroll America. For the past year, he has worked in Austin, Texas, educating uninsured consumers about their healthcare options under the Affordable Care Act and putting them in touch with local service organizations that provide personal, hands-on enrollment assistance. Bill was part of the effort that helped over 734,000 Texans obtain health insurance—many for the first time in their lives. During the most recent Open Enrollment period, Bill helped organize volunteers and partners in the small- and mid-sized cities of West Texas to ensure that Texans were covered.
