  • Say what?

    Open enrollment for Obamacare is happening again? It sure is, and here's why it's important.

  • A tipping point

    This is one really easy thing you can do today for Obamacare.

    We're not asking for all your free time on this—just that you say you'll do some small part to spread the word, or help a friend or neighbor find out how to get the coverage they need.

  • Getting ready for the next big health care moment

    The second open enrollment period for Obamacare starts November 15th—and these volunteers are ready for it.

    With less than two months to go, volunteer leaders gathered in Chicago to talk strategy and trade best practices in a two-day intensive training.

  • Affordable care for the self-employed

    Access to a quality health insurance plan has helped my business grow.

    When the MRI showed the anomaly in my brain, health insurance companies didn’t care that it was benign. They used the irregular MRI as a reason to deny me coverage. For the past few years, I’ve been self-employed, and I've felt like I always had to fend for myself. But now for the first time, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, I feel like I'm on a level playing field with my friends who work at large companies. My irregular MRI is no longer an obstacle I have to overcome to get coverage I can afford.

  • The good news on health care keeps rolling in

    This is all the more reason why we can't go back to a broken health care system.

    Millions of Americans now have the piece of mind that if they get sick, they can get help. It's an amazing thing. And the good news just keeps rolling in. Check out some of the headlines.

  • This is wrong, and this fight needs you

    These lawmakers are playing politics, and their actions are hurting people.

    One of the ways the Affordable Care Act provides better access to health care is by expanding Medicaid for millions of Americans. Two dozen states refused to do it, even though it could help their own people—all because they don't like Obamacare.

  • Put your name in the permanent record, alongside mine

    More than 8 million people signed up for health care through the marketplace, because of what you did.

    I was in the room, only a few yards away, when President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law. It's still one of the proudest moments of my life. That kind of lasting change that would help millions of people is why I got into this line of work in the first place.

  • What repeal really means

    OFA volunteers made sure their representatives know why health care reform matters.

    Despite the fact that millions of people are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act, some members of Congress have spent the past few years trying to repeal it. We can't let that happen.

    OFA volunteers across the country won’t stand by and let their representatives act this way.

  • Thank you, truly

    Your name belongs on the record alongside the President's.

    "The work you did is how real, lasting change gets made, and I hope it will be remembered for years to come." —Barack Obama

  • Put the pressure on health care repealers

    Show Congress #WhatRepealMeans.

    Today there are more than 8 million Americans enrolled in private insurance through the marketplace, and millions more covered through Medicaid expansion and other aspects of health care reform.

    So we've got one question: Do health care repealers in Congress still want to take that health care away?
