The LGBT Task Force of Health Care for All NY (HCFANY) is sponsoring a week of health insurance outreach and enrollment events January 12-17, 2015. Designed to reach, inform and help uninsured lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) New Yorkers enroll in affordable coverage, the week will include a series of free events in all five boroughs of New York City. These events will help attendees learn about the coverage options available through the NY State of Health marketplace and meet with enrollers from navigator agencies to begin the enrollment process.

The Manhattan event will take place on January 14 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
