YW 67 – Understanding Obamacare with Anne Filipic

Anne Filipic is the President of Enroll America. Filipic has been tasked with taking one of the most politicized and divisive pieces of legislation in recent American history and turning it into a kitchen table, family-friendly consumer issue. She joins the podcast to discuss the marketing tactics she is utilizing to sell Obamacare.

Filipic tells us the truth on how things are really going with Obamacare and whether they are hitting their metrics. She also explains why she set a deadline of March 31st for enrollment.

Anne Filipic serves as President of Enroll America, a non-profit organization dedicated to maximizing the number of Americans who enroll in health coverage made available through the Affordable Care Act.
