WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement today regarding the first day of the Affordable Care Act open enrollment period, which runs from November 1 to December 15. Starting today, Wisconsinites can visit www.healthcare.gov to buy a health insurance plan for the 2018 calendar year.
“Starting today, millions of Americans around the country and hundreds of thousands of people in Wisconsin can visit www.healthcare.gov to choose a health care plan that works best for them. Despite all of the misinformation, including President Trump claiming to end subsidies to help Americans afford coverage, the markets are still open for enrollment just as they have been in the past and you can still qualify for premium assistance. The Affordable Care Act is alive and well, and Wisconsinites only have until December 15 to enroll in a plan, so please visit www.healthcare.gov and choose a plan that’s right for you.”
