An increasing number of American citizens and legal residents are expected to enroll or re-enroll in health insurance plans this fall during open enrollment. Research shows the vast majority of people in the U.S. are uncomfortable, overwhelmed and intimidated when it comes to making decisions about health insurance coverage. Yet, those who have health insurance get access to care leading to better heath than those who do not. With health insurance in the public spotlight, Smart Choice Health Insurance© is helping Americans take control of their personal and family financial health needs.

Smart Choice Health Insurance© is a comprehensive, research-based, unbiased curriculum designed to equip people with the tools they need to make a smart health insurance decision for themselves and their families. In 2014, the program received a national community education award. Talk to your local Extension professional about Smart Choice Health Insurance© workshop dates in your hometown.
