NPR, Morning Edition, Oct. 11, 2013 (MP3)
Luisa Blue, head of the local Service Employees International Union in San Jose, Calif., has five more months to spend $1 million. The union received a grant from , the state’s health insurance marketplace, to educate the public about the exchange.
SEIU is using some of the money to call people in their homes at night and on the weekend. “Over 4,000 (people) have said tell me more about Covered California and how can I enroll to get health insurance,” Blue says of the union’s first two weeks on the case.
