December 15, 2023
On November 2, Mayor Donna Deegan, City Councilman Michael Boylan (District 6), Dr. Sunil Joshi, Chief Health Officer for the City of Jacksonville, and Lynn Sherman, Executive Director of Health Programs for the City of Jacksonvillelaunched Get Covered Jax!, a public education campaign to help Jacksonville residents without health insurance get covered.
In the interest of building a healthier Jacksonville for everybody, Mayor Deegan and healthcare leaders in City Hall want to help make the process of enrolling in a private healthcare plan as simple – and as painless – as possible.

“A local public education campaign like this has never been implemented before, and I am excited to see the fantastic results it is having,” said Mayor Deegan. “I often say that a confused mind says no. Get Covered Jax is providing important information so that citizens can say yes to enrolling in health insurance. I want Jacksonville to be a healthier city because health, both physical and mental, is key to our economic prosperity. This is a big step in the right direction.”

Get Covered Jax! seeks to educate citizens about the benefits of having health insurance, eligibility, coverage options available, best practices for navigating the Marketplace, and resources to help consumers through the process.

Eligible individuals have until December 15, 2023, to enroll in a private healthcare plan through the Florida Health Insurance Marketplace for coverage starting January 1, 2024. And, they have until January 15, 2024, to enroll for coverage starting February 1, 2024.
