Northeast: “Obamacare in Knoxville” by Knoxville Metro Pulse

“But it’s not just THCC that’s been trying to encourage people to enroll in health insurance. Get Covered America is a national campaign arm of Enroll America, a nonprofit whose goal is to enroll as many people as possible in a health-insurance plan. Get Covered America’s focus is on educating people about the ACA; it operates in 11 states, including Tennessee. The director of the Tennessee office, Tobi Johnson, is based in Knoxville. Organizing for Action, another nonprofit, is dedicated to advancing policies voted for in 2012, which includes the ACA, gun-violence prevention, climate change, and immigration reform. The organization is officially nonpartisan, but it’s closely tied to President Obama’s campaign team. Jim Messina, who was Obama’s campaign manager in 2012, is the chairman of the organization, and Jon Carson left his Obama White House job to become the executive director of the organization. Its focus is also education, and it trains volunteers to go out and share facts about the law and how to sign up for insurance.”
