Certified Educators seek to promote a culture of coverage, eliminate barriers to accessing coverage, and motivate consumers to sign up for health insurance. They have been trained in a wide variety of topics, including insurance plan options, consumer eligibility and privacy — and an overview of the Affordable Care Act. Certified Educators are delivering information in 13 different languages to nine million Californians and more than 200,000 small business owners in California's 58 counties.
In July 2013 more than 2,500 community leaders participated in trainings statewide about the Covered California health insurance marketplace. Certified Educators are now posted throughout the state, attending events and workshops to help spread the word. Whether at a farmers market or a health fair, a church or a college campus event, Certified Educators will be where Californians live, work, and play.
