Spreading the word to #GetCovered in 2014

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, health insurance has never been more affordable and accessible. But the deadline to enroll for coverage that starts this year is March 31st, and that's why OFA volunteers took to the streets this week with one mission: get the information out to people in their communities about getting covered.

Check out some of the great work from Tuesday:

Columbus, OhioThe sun was shining on volunteers in Columbus as they passed out more than 500 flyers. Volunteers Tim and Mark, pictured above, shared their story of signing up for coverage and saving $30,000 a year.

Chicago, IllinoisBill had a heart attack and stroke, which led to the loss of his eyesight. Soon afterwards, he lost his job and the health insurance benefits that came with it. Now, he's covered again, and helping spread the word about affordable care.
