Millenials invited to enter video contest featuring stories of effects of the Affordable Care Act

Lights, camera, health insurance?

A new contest sponsored by the federal Department of Health and Human Services seeks to mine the skills young Americans have honed through endless hours of camera-phone use to create informational videos about the Affordable Care Act.

“For millions of young people, health insurance hasn’t been an option because it’s always been out of reach – because it costs too much or isn’t offered through a job,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a press release.

“The Health Insurance Marketplace gives uninsured young people the opportunity to enroll in affordable health insurance, and the Healthy Young America video contest is meant to tell their stories to other young people and help them find the security of health insurance they deserve.”
