White House Highlights ACA Benefits for LGBT Individuals
Last week, the White House hosted a summit to highlight the coverage options that will be available in the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges to individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. LGBT advocates also launched the Out2Enroll education and outreach initiative, which they say is particularly important because individuals who are LGBT are more likely to lack health insurance.
