Please note that we have switched the way participants register for webinars. After you register, you'll receive a confirmation email that includes the web login information as well as the number to dial for audio. Also, we have begun scheduling webinars for 1.5 hours to make sure we don't run out of time with all of the new information and questions about Medicaid expansion. 

 









New Resources

  • Are you a new enrollment assister and looking for a walk-through of the Marketplace application as you get trained? CMS has a You Tube video where they walk though a Marketplace application. This will help as you prepare to do your first enrollments!
  • Check out the the Assister's Guide to Resources, a new tool from CMS that gives an overview of federal and state agencies and how they can help assisters. It also covers many of the national organizaiton that work on outreach and enrollment. This is a good overview, especially if you are a new enrollment assister.
