More Americans Are Covered Than Ever Before Thanks to Lower Health Care Premiums as Trump Doubles Down on Vows to Repeal the ACA

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that a record 20 million Americans have signed up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces – nearly double the number of people enrolled when President Biden took office. The Biden administration has done everything in its power to lower costs and get the word out about affordable coverage, with historic investments in outreach to rural Americans, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, and people with disabilities. Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act’s reduction of health insurance premium costs, eighty percent of people can still find a health plan through the Marketplace for $10 or less per month. The 2024 open enrollment period ends on January 16, so families have time to find an affordable plan at In response, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement:

“President Biden made quality, affordable health care a top priority, and as a result, millions more Americans are saving money on premiums and have the care they need to stay healthy. Having health insurance means you can see a doctor without sacrificing other necessities like food and rent. Americans want and need the affordable, quality health care made possible through the ACA. However, Donald Trump and his Republican allies have only doubled down on their threats to repeal the ACA and revoke the savings made possible through the Inflation Reduction Act. Republicans are determined to rip away affordable care, gut protections for pre-existing conditions, and increase costs – all at the expense of the American people. These record numbers are a big deal, once again proving the steps taken by the Biden Administration to lower costs are working across the nation.”
