***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11 AT 5:45 PM ET // 2:45 PM PT***
Las Vegas, NV — Today, February 11, 2022, at 5:45 PM ET // 2:45 PM PT, Congresswoman Susie Lee (D-NV-03), State Senator Fabian Doñate, and local advocates will join Protect Our Care Nevada for a virtual press conference. During the call, speakers will 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 lower prescription drug prices. Among 14.5 million people, more than 100,000 Nevadans 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. President Biden and the Democrats have worked hard to lower Nevadans’ healthcare and prescription drug costs. 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.
