The Report Comes During the Last Days of the Open Enrollment Period, Which Is Set to Close on January 16

Washington, DC — On Thursday, January 11, 2024, at 12:00 PM ET, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) will join Protect Our Care and Young Invincibles to discuss how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is benefiting young people across the nation by providing access to more affordable health coverage. During the call, speakers will discuss how the ACA is working to benefit young Americans, and how President Biden and Democrats in Congress are protecting and expanding these benefits. Right now, four out of five ACA enrollees can find coverage for $10 or less per month. 

According to the report, the ACA has lowered costs and made coverage more available to young people through policies including: Medicaid expansion, affordable Marketplace coverage, and the requirement that insurers must allow people up to age 26 to stay on their parents’ health plan. This has expanded young people’s access to essential services like mental health care. In 2023, enrollment in the ACA Marketplaces reached an all-time high, with 15.7 million Americans receiving coverage. More than one in four, or 4.1 million of those enrolled in Marketplace coverage were between the ages of 18 and 34.
