From our colleagues at the Partnership Center at the Department of Health and Human Services:
Millions of Americans lack quality, affordable health care coverage, which is essential for healthy individuals, families and communities. The Health Care law has made health insurance more affordable and accessible through the Health Insurance Marketplace (HealthCare.gov). Faith and community-based organizations can provide the bridge from those who are most vulnerable and hardest-to-reach to the health services they need.
The 2016 Health Care Law Toolkit can help faith and community leaders learn and educate others about the health care law. These materials can be used at enrollment events and for other education and outreach efforts. Get the complete toolkit or download each section of the toolkit below:
Also, consider using these materials for Education and Outreach available through the Health Insurance Marketplace:

From Coverage to Care
We want to make sure once people sign up for health insurance that everyone learns about how to use their coverage– the actual benefits they receive– like wellness check- ups and preventive services. Preventive services can include mammograms, obesity screening and counseling, immunizations and mental health services —the more likely they are to enroll in coverage, stay covered, and make the commitment to healthier lives for themselves and for their families. To gain access to the primary resources including the Roadmap to Better Care and a Healthier You and From Coverage to Care, Enrollment Toolkit, please visit Marketplace.cms.gov/c2c . The site holds a rich array of resources for community resources in multiple languages.
