re: the Obamacare PR machine kicks into high gear today...
by Tammy de Leeuw
Reuters and others are reporting that the Obamacare public relations campaign goes into effect today with the intended goal of convincing millions of healthy, young (mostly male) people to sign up for insurance that costs up to 50% more than everyone else is paying.
"The campaign is expected to target 2.7 million younger consumers between the ages of 18 to 35, whose participation in new online health insurance exchanges is vital to the success of President Barack Obama's 2010 healthcare reform law.
But the announcement provided no new clues about how administration officials intend to reach the target group - mostly males and non-whites - despite new concerns about whether the exchanges will be ready for open enrollment on October 1.
The campaign will be one segment of a much broader national outreach effort that will include hospitals, healthcare companies and providers, community organizers, media groups and state and local officials. The challenge will be to overcome huge public skepticism, particularly among young and healthy consumers, that the new plans are worthwhile."
According to administration officials, the biggest challenge will be "to overcome huge public skepticism, particularly among young and healthy consumers, that the new plans are worthwhile."
