We’re excited to be part of history, in collaboration with YouTube studios, to encourage our peers to “Get Covered” by affordable healthcare — aka, ObamaCare.
A-list celebrities are joining the latest push to get Americans educated and enrolled in Obamacare.
The “Tell a Friend — Get Covered” campaign is teaming up with YouTube to produce a live, six-hour variety show on Thursday, with content from Funny or Die, skits and educational segments meant to inform viewers of their affordable health care options.
The campaign has already confirmed Jennifer Hudson, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Banks for appearances in viral videos that will air during the event. A video featuring “Whose Line Is It Anyway” host Aisha Tyler was released Tuesday as part of the campaign to encourage young people to sign up for health care.
View the video above.
The marathon event comes after a Monday enrollment report revealed that young, healthy Americans are seeking coverage at a much lower rate than President Barack Obama’s administration initially projected. According to the report, less than a quarter of the 2.2 million Americans enrolled in Obamacare are between the ages of 18 and 34; the administration expected 38 percent of enrollees to be within that age range.
The general goal is to use entertainment and participatory media to raise awareness and inspire a number of the 35 million Americans now eligible for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act to #GetCovered. For more, go to http://www.tellafriendgetcovered.com/
