Planned Parenthood launches ObamaCare enrollment drive

Planned Parenthood and its affiliates around the country are preparing to push enrollment on ObamaCare's exchanges to people without health insurance.

The national women's health group, like last year, will provide resources at its clinics describing the marketplaces and how to sign up for coverage.


Planned Parenthood also unveiled a series of online guides and glossaries to make the Affordable Care Act less opaque.

The law's second sign-up period begins Saturday and lasts until Feb. 15.

“The health care law can be confusing, and not surprisingly, many women have a lot of questions about it," said Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. "PlannedParenthoodHealthInsuranceFacts.org is a one-stop shop for women to learn more about health insurance, what kind of financial help they can get, and what to consider as a woman while choosing a health insurance plan."

The group is one of hundreds of organizations working to help enroll people from underserved communities in the marketplaces.

The partnerships are crucial to the Obama administration as officials seek out harder-to-reach individuals who might not understand health insurance.

Enrollment among Latinos was smaller than the White House hoped for last year. The group historically has had the highest uninsured rate among ethnicities.

Planned Parenthood said its resources would be available in Spanish.
