Industry Alliance Launches Insurance Enrollment Effort
On Wednesday, Enroll America -- a coalition of 42 industry, health care and consumer groups -- launched an effort to inform uninsured U.S. residents about coverage available through the federal health reform law. AARP, Aetna, the American Hospital Association and United Way are among the more than 40 members of the coalition. Organizers said America's Health Insurance Plans, which opposed the passage of the overhaul, provided seed money for Enroll America and supports the coalition's objectives.
