Washington, DC – Doctors for America issued the following statement following the announcement that 11.4 million people nationwide selected a health insurance plan or renewed their coverage during the 2015 open enrollment period.
Statement from Doctors for America Executive Director Dr. Alice Chen:
“Doctors across the country are celebrating the 11.4 million newly and re-enrolled Americans who obtained coverage during 2015 Open Enrollment. Thanks to the ACA, the uninsured rate has dropped to the lowest on record and more Americans are getting the medical care they need. As physicians and medical students, we are committed to providing great care to our new patients. We are equally committed to closing the coverage gap for millions still without access to care because their state leaders have refused to expand Medicaid.”
