Consumer Health Coalition (CHC) is dedicated to inspiring a consumer movement to advance health and enhance access to quality, affordable health care. We further our mission by targeting populations that are at-risk for experiencing barriers to good health and health care. This includes people with low incomes, the uninsured and underinsured, and underserved populations.
How is Consumer Health Coalition involved with the Affordable Care Act?
Consumer Health Coalition has Certified Marketplace Navigators who can provide unbiased enrollment assistance at no cost and guide consumers through the process of evaluating and enrolling in health plans through the Marketplace and Medicaid.
Open Enrollment for 2016 has ended, but many life changes can qualify someone for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). These include:
- Losing health insurance (due to job loss, divorce, loss of coverage)
- Change in family size (such as marriage, birth, adoption, death)
- Moving to a new area
- Becoming a citizen
- Leaving a correctional facility
- Other exceptional circumstances
- **People can apply for Medicaid and CHIP any time, all year.**

How does Consumer Health Coalition “inspire a consumer movement?”
Some of our most experienced advocates meet monthly on the Health Committee for People with Disabilities (HCPD) to work for self and systemic advocacy. Our advocacy work also includes additional task forces, letters to the editor, legislative visits, and more. Find more information on the calendar in the right column and throughout the website. All are welcome to get involved!
