Saturday, December 15 is the enrollment deadline to sign up for health care insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace for 2019.
Health care is a human right. Thanks to former President Barack Obama and the ACA, millions of previously uninsured Americans now have access to life-saving services despite repeated right-wing attempts to kill the popular program.
The number of uninsured nonelderly Americans, according to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, decreased from more than 44 million in 2013 – the year before the major coverage provisions went into effect – to just below 27 million in 2016.
The attacks continue, and enrollment numbers are down this year. Please do not let this deadline pass and risk your health and that of your family.
To compare plans and to directly enroll go to healthcare.gov or call 1-800-318-2596.
We have never lost a battle we fought, and we have never won a battle unless we fought. Keep fighting. Enroll today.
