Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released this statement on the first day of open enrollment for Affordable Care Act marketplaces for 2021, which runs from November 1 through December 15:

“Affordable health coverage is more essential than ever during the pandemic.  While Republicans try to tear down the Affordable Care Act in the Supreme Court, families can enroll knowing that Democrats in Congress stand ready to defend and strengthen pre-existing conditions protections and every other benefit of the ACA.  Despite Republicans’ continued sabotage campaign, millions of Americans will have access to quality, affordable plans, with most people using the Marketplaces qualifying for financial help and, as a result, many will be able to find plans for as little as $10 per month.

“Democrats will continue our work For The People to lower health costs and prescription drug prices while protecting the pre-existing condition benefit for all Americans.”
