In Florida, activisits hit farmers markets, libraries to reach uninsured

Advocates, brokers and federally funded navigators have one shared goal during open enrollment: Increase the number of Americans buying health plans. In Florida, that means getting directly involved in the community in order to get as many people as possible signed up for health coverage this year, according to Kaiser Health News.

To encourage more people to sign up in the state, enrollment assisters are handing out flyers at food truck festivals, farmers' markets and health fairs. They're also giving one-on-one enrollment assistance at libraries, hospitals and community centers, and are even showing up after church services to sign up people; some people have been inspired to act by their minister's suggestion during the service, according to KHNArticle
