Health Care becomes affordable

“There has never been a more critical time to ensure quality health coverage for all Americans,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. “Thanks to the Special Enrollment Period, we were able to help a record-breaking number of people across the country get covered, including those in rural and underserved communities. No one should have to lose their life savings to gain life-saving care.”

“It’s clear that when health coverage is accessible and affordable, people sign up. Peace of mind is especially needed during the COVID-19 pandemic and thanks to the Special Enrollment Period millions more can now rest easy knowing they are covered. The American Rescue Plan made health coverage more affordable than ever and CMS urges Congress to make those savings permanent,” said CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure.
