Who are the local leaders promoting health enrollment?

Local leaders boost healthcare enrollment.

Local leaders boost health care enrollment through the Executive’s Leadership Circle.

Not only are 23 local organizations serving as partners in the enrollment process, by providing one-on-one help for people trying to buy insurance, but there’s a group of influential business and non-profit leaders assembling to reach out further into local communities. 

King County Executive Dow Constantine has created the Leadership Circle to champion enrollment of people who are newly eligible for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. This group consists of prominent community leaders from local business, health and non-profit organizations, education, cities, media and other sectors, all of whom have made a commitment to reach out to their respective constituencies.

What they’re doing
Members of the Leadership Circle have pledged to help spread the word about new opportunities for health insurance, help Executive Constantine monitor implementation, and provide follow-up advice on reaching those who are eligible but still haven’t enrolled.

Three co-leads have been appointed to serve as co-chairs of the Leadership Circle:

  • Tim Gibbon of Swedish Medical Center
  • Maud Daudon of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce
  • Gordon McHenry, Jr. of the non-profit Solid Ground
