The outreach and enabling network team is designed to connect certified application counselors (CAC) and other eligibility and enrollment professionals with local, state and federal partners to increase access to care through health insurance enrollment and retention of coverage. Through networking, monthly meetings, peer-to-peer learning, webinars, technical assistance and trainings, CHAD offers support with outreach and enabling services in the following areas:


• Affordable Care Act (ACA)
• Get Covered North Dakota Initiative -
• Get Covered South Dakota Initiative -
• Educational and awareness outreach materials
• Coverage to care
• Partnerships
• Reporting
• Media relations
• Relationship development with community organizations
• State summits



As part of CHAD’s efforts to support outreach and enabling efforts, we provide consulting services to our members for the Affordable Care Act and Health Insurance Marketplace.  These services can be utilized to provide specific information in the areas of insurance, and legal and tax issues, and provide answers to complex scenarios and life situations. All health center staff involved in these areas are encouraged to join this collaborative networking team.
