Carson Statement on the November 1st Start of Open Enrollment
Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Andre Carson (IN-07) released the following statement highlighting the start of the 2018 Open Enrollment Period on November 1, when Hoosiers can choose and enroll in the health insurance plan of their choice:
“From November 1st through December 15th, Hoosiers seeking coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace for 2018 should visit healthcare.gov to learn more about their options,” said Carson. “With Open Enrollment six weeks shorter than in previous years and less funding to get the word out, there is no time to waste.
“I am proud to say that the Affordable Care Act is—and will remain—the law of the land. While only a first step, the Affordable Care Act expanded access to health insurance and put in place essential consumer protections. I call on my colleagues in Congress to take swift action to reverse the Trump Administration’s sabotage of our healthcare system, and stabilize the insurance markets. Now is the time for Congress to reach across the aisle and work together on smart, viable solutions that lower healthcare costs, improve quality of care, and expand coverage for Indiana’s hardworking families.”
