14.5 Million Signed Up for Health Coverage Thanks to President Biden

President Biden’s Leadership on Health Care Helped Millions of Families Gain Quality, Affordable Coverage

Washington, DC — Today, the Biden administration announced that a record 14.5 million people have signed up for health coverage during the 2022 open enrollment period. In California, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Washington DC, residents can continue to sign up for coverage through January 31. In response, Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:

“The success of this open enrollment period is not a coincidence. After Republicans spent years trying to hike health care costs and rip coverage away, President Biden prioritized the health and well-being of the American people. As a direct result of the President’s leadership, health insurance is more affordable than ever and millions of families were able to enroll in coverage for the first time. By passing the American Rescue Plan into law, four out of five enrollees were able to purchase health insurance for $10 or less per month. Families saved thousands on their premiums, giving them much-needed financial relief while ensuring they are protected if they get sick. And this is just the start: President Biden’s Build Back Better Act will drive down health care and prescription drug prices and ensure millions more Americans have the health care they need for years to come.”
