The deadline for enrolling in quality, affordable health care under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is rapidly approaching!
Just yesterday, we learned the news that more than six million Americans have enrolled in quality, affordable health coverage through the federal and state Marketplaces created under the ACA. But in order to take advantage of these benefits, Iowans must enroll by March 31, 2014. They can do so by visiting Healthcare.gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596.
“These enrollment numbers show us that the promise of the Affordable Care Act—expanding quality, comprehensive coverage to millions of Americans, many of whom previously had no access to health insurance—is becoming a reality,” Harkin said. “In addition to the six million Americans who have gained access through the federal and state Marketplaces, millions of Americans have also gained health coverage through the expansion of Medicaid, and more than three million young adults have gained coverage by staying on their parents’ plans.
“From today through March 31st, Iowans seeking health insurance coverage for 2014 can review their options available through our state’s Marketplace—and sign up—by visiting Healthcare.gov or by calling 1-800-318-2596.”
