The Trust today announced more than $1.4 million in grant awards to support efforts to help educate North Carolinians about available health insurance options. Awarded to eight organizations, the grants will help groups reach out to low-income, Spanish-speaking, and rural North Carolinians, as well as support statewide collaborative efforts among organizations working to maximize the number of people who enroll for health coverage through the Marketplace established by the Affordable Care Act.
The Affordable Care Act means lower cost health insurance is now available to millions of people whose current health insurance options are few to none. The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust has invested nearly $4.4 million to help North Carolinians identify and secure health insurance, with the long-term goal of ensuring everyone can access affordable health care. Specifically, we are focused on enrolling North Carolina’s financially disadvantaged rural and Spanish-speaking residents.
A smaller share of people in North Carolina’s 80 rural counties who are eligible for subsidized health insurance under the federal Affordable Care Act have enrolled to get that coverage than the share that have enrolled in the state’s six urban counties or 14 suburban counties, a new study says.
