by Kirsten Reed on March 2, 2012

Enroll America has recently released its second issue brief in their new health literacy series. This series is helping providers get the information they need to design outreach and enrollment materials that will be easy for patients to understand and act on.

With new coverage options beginning in 2014, either through health insurance exchanges or through expanded Medicaid coverage, many American’s will be faced with tough decisions on what to do next.

The second issue, “Communicating with Plain Language,” offers 10 easy steps for writing clear, concise, user-friendly materials and focuses on the language used in written materials such as applications, renewal forms, notices, explanatory materials and brochures. Using the tips that are presented will help make sure that people understand their options and are armed with the information they need to make the best decision possible.
