Release: Arizona Democrats Champion President Biden’s Special Health Insurance Open Enrollment Period

PHOENIX – Arizona Democrats believe that healthcare is a right. Now more than ever, Arizonans need access to affordable, quality healthcare. We are thrilled that starting today and running through May 15th, the Biden-Harris Administration is opening HealthCare.gov for all Americans to have the opportunity to sign up for health insurance.

Unlike the previous administration, President Biden is making sure that the enrollment period is adequately advertised so that as many people as possible gain coverage.

Over 154,000 Arizonans enrolled in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace plans for 2021. Because of the landmark legislation, millions of people no longer have to worry that an insurance company will deny them coverage because of a pre-existing condition.

Arizona Democratic Party spokesman, Matt Grodsky, stated the following:

“There are still more than 700,000 Arizonans who don’t have health insurance. This Special Enrollment Period supports the efforts President Biden is making in the American Rescue Plan, which will ensure healthcare coverage is more affordable and accessible. Arizonans should take advantage of this opportunity to enroll in the plan that is best for them and their families.”
