Baltimore Ravens To Promote Obamacare

The Ravens will receive $130,000 from the government to push Maryland’s health care exchange.

The reigning Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens will promote Maryland’s health care exchange, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch. The Ravens are the first professional sports team to promote Obamacare.

The documents show Maryland Health Exchange finalized a deal with the Ravens on Sept. 9 that gives the team $130,000 in exchange for promotion of the state’s health care marketplace through television, radio, and the team’s website and social media accounts.

The Obama administration previously reached out to multiple professional sports leagues to help sell the Affordable Care Act, but the leagues declined.

“We have responded to the letters we received from members of Congress to inform them we currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about [the health care law’s] implementation,” the NFL said in a statement in June.
