One year ago today Americans began enrolling in the Health Insurance Marketplace. With the barriers to quality, affordable healthcare finally lifted, millions enrolled.
Today, despite the bumps in the road, 7.3 million enrollees have signed up for marketplace plans and another 8 million have gained coverage through Medicaid or CHIP. These accomplishments are due in large part to the tireless work of physician advocates like you who conducted community talks, knocked on doors and even organized a statewide bus tour. As we reflect on this major accomplishment we know there is still much work to be done to ensure every American finally has access to the healthcare they need and deserve.
The good news is the next opportunity to expand coverage is just around the corner. The Open enrollment period for 2015 coverage begins November 15, 2014 and runs through February 15, 2015.
Doctors across the country are going to be working hard to help more Americans #getcovered and ensure this enrollment is as successful as the last!
