MADISON, Wis.—The open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces begins today and, thanks to the Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats, high-quality health care coverage is more affordable than ever. Millions of Americans – including over 187,000 Wisconsinites – stand to benefit from extended premium subsidies that were included in the Inflation Reduction Act. These enhanced subsidies will continue to lower costs and provide a critical lifeline for families across the Badger State. Visit HealthCare.gov to find a plan that works for you.
Meghan Roh, Opportunity Wisconsin Program Director:
“Health care lies at the heart of the Inflation Reduction Act, and the provisions to reduce costs and expand care are overwhelmingly popular with Wisconsinites across the political spectrum. We’re incredibly grateful to our elected leaders like President Joe Biden and Senator Tammy Baldwin who have heard our voices and supported the Inflation Reduction Act.
“Unfortunately, the only voices Congressional Republicans seem to listen to are those of the wealthy and well-connected. Wisconsinites are struggling to make ends meet and instead of voting for a bill to bring down health care costs, our other Senator, Ron Johnson, continues to prioritize himself and those like him. As someone who loves to talk about rising costs and inflation, Senator Johnson’s ‘no’ vote on the Inflation Reduction Act shows us that his words are nothing but empty rhetoric.”
