#ThanksACA: More people have access to quality, affordable healthcare

This thanksgiving, will you help us give thanks to the affordable care act?

Because of the Affordable Care Act millions of people now have access to quality and affordable healthcare.

We want to spread the word about the ways the ACA is helping and give thanks by sharing this hashtag: #ThanksACA

It’s important that we use this time to remind people that the ACA works for Connecticut residents and millions of Americans because:

  • Insurance companies can longer deny coverage because of a pre-existing condition, like breast cancer or diabetes.
  • Women no longer pay more than men for the same health insurance coverage.
  • Preventive care services like mammograms and early detection of critical illnesses are available
  • Insurance companies can no longer raise rates without justification.
  • Young adults have gained health insurance because they can now stay on their parents’ health plans until age 26.

Each post on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the hashtag “#ThanksACA” will become a part of this social media effort.

On Wednesday, November 26th from 3pm to 4pm, the #hcsmct group (healthcare social media Connecticut) is organizing a twitter storm to tweet #thanksACA messages.

Here’s how to get started:

    1. Here are Connecticut-specific sample messages and infographics created by the CT Health Foundation you can use.
    2. Here is a sample twitter message you can re-tweet:
