Washington, DC - Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) urged West Virginians without health insurance to apply for coverage during the Affordable Care Act (ACA)Open Enrollment Period. Tomorrow is the last day to enroll in or change plans for coverage in 2022.
"Tomorrow is the last day West Virginians can sign up for healthcare coverage or make changes to existing plans during the Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment Period for 2022. The ACAcontinues to serve as a lifeline for thousands of West Virginians and provides quality, affordable healthcare coverage. And last March, I voted for the American Rescue Planwhich continues to provide lower premiums and cheaper health plans for West Virginians. I encourage every West Virginian without health insurance to visit healthcare.gov to find a plan that works for you and your family today," said Senator Manchin.
The American Rescue Plancontinues to provide additional financial assistance to West Virginians by lowering healthcare coverage premiums and expanding coverage options. This additional financial assistance allows 80% of Americans to find a plan for $10 or less per month. So far, over 21,000 West Virginians have enrolled in plans during this Open Enrollment Period.
West Virginia offers free enrollment assistance to all in-state residents through the WV Navigator. You can learn more at acanavigator.com/wv/home or call at 1-844-WV-CARES.
