According to the Heartland Institute, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) will receive almost one million dollars to promote ObamaCare. The program is designed to educate teens to target their families.
The state’s health insurance exchange, Covered California, said that within the $37 million in grants they are using to promote ObamaCare is $990,000 for the LAUSD. The LAUSD describes its program as “Teens trained to be messengers to family members.”
Covered California spokeswoman Sarah Soto-Taylor said. “We have confidence that the model LA Unified brought to the table will be successful in reaching our target population, which includes family members of students.”
