***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 20 AT 3:30 PM ET // 1:30 PM MT***
Phoenix, AZ – Today, January 20 at 3:30 PM ET // 1:30 PM MT, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ-01) will join health care advocates and Protect Our Care Arizona to discuss the record number of Americans who have signed up for coverage during the ACA open enrollment period, making the benefits such as ACA subsidies in the American Rescue Plan permanent, and the urgent need to pass the Build Back Better Act.
A record 14.2 million people have signed up for coverage through the ACA marketplaces. Provisions in the 2021 American Rescue Plan made coverage more affordable than ever before, with enhanced premium tax credits allowing four out of five eligible enrollees to find a plan for $10 or less per month. As we enter the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has never been a more urgent time to ensure families can get the health care they need. President Biden and the Democrats have worked hard to lower costs for Arizonans. Now it’s more important than ever that the Senate pass Build Back Better.
