***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2022***
HHS Regional Director, Local Lawmakers, and Health Care Advocates to Discuss ACA Marketplace Open Enrollment
Colorado — Today, Protect Our Care will host an event in Colorado with the HHS Region 8 director Lily Griego, State Senator Dylan Roberts, Colorado Speaker of the House Julie McCluskie, and Jake Williams, Executive Director of Healthier Colorado, to discuss the ACA Open Enrollment 2023 period which began on November 1, 2022.
The Inflation Reduction Act will keep health care costs low for 13 million families purchasing plans through the ACA marketplace this year. On average, families will save thousands of dollars a year on health care, giving them the much-needed ability to pay for other essentials like rent, groceries, and gas. These savings are a game-changer for Coloradans — saving a middle-class family of four in Colorado an average of $3535 on their yearly premiums.
