Massachusetts health care — wonky, with a healthy dose of reality

HCFA Launches “A Healthy Tweet” to support HelpLine

HCFA Launches “A Healthy Tweet” to support HelpLine

September 30, 2009

For the month of October, HCFA is asking you to Tweet for Health Reform! A Healthy Tweet is a campaign to spread the word about the importance of health reform while raising money for HCFA’s HelpLine. Click here for the full details or visit http://tinyurl.com/4reform.

Hundreds of people call HCFA’s HelpLine every week. These are people who need health care and don’t know how to access the system. Many callers have recently lost their jobs or work several jobs, but are not offered insurance or can’t afford it . The HelpLine enrolls callers in health coverage and ensures that callers can access the care they need.

We need your help! The HelpLine is busier than ever – legal immigrants are confused about the change in their coverage, more and more people are losing their jobs and the debate over national health reform has people in Massachusetts wondering what will happen to their own coverage. HCFA needs to raise $5,000 by October 31st in order to keep the HelpLine answering calls.

How can you help?

Thanks for helping HCFA fundraise through social media! We, and those we help through our HelpLine, appreciate any amount you can give.
