CHICAGO (AP) The Obama administration is bringing the Affordable Care Act to the mall for the busiest shopping days of the holiday season.
The Department of Health and Human Services is announcing Wednesday a partnership with Westfield Shopping Centers in seven states.
Starting on Black Friday, Westfield will set up tables, chairs and other needed items for HHS enrollment workers and post information about enrollment services on its website.
Outreach workers will hand out information at malls in Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, New York and Washington.
The effort will continue through Feb. 15, the end of the current enrollment period for private insurance coverage under the health care overhaul.
