What a Difference a Year Makes
As New Hampshire communities grapple with the surge of the Omicron variant, access to reliable, quality health care has never been more important. That’s why I was laser-focused on bringing down the costs of premiums through negotiations around the American Rescue Plan – now, affordable health care is within reach for more working families,” said Senator Jeanne Shaheen. “As the January 15th deadline to sign up for health insurance through the ACA quickly approaches, I encourage Granite Staters to sign up for this life-saving coverage.”
Today, health advocates and consumers joined Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02) and Protect Our Care NH to discuss the House passage of the Build Back Better Act, the most significant expansion of affordable health care since the Affordable Care Act.
Numbers released from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) show that more than 15,902 New Hampshire residents have enrolled so far for a new health care plan on the Health Insurance Marketplace since open enrollment began. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reported that nearly 4.6 million Americans nationally have signed up for 2022 individual market health insurance coverage through the Marketplaces since the start of the 2022 Marketplace Open Enrollment Period (OEP) on November 1.
Today, under the leadership of President Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Democrats passed the Build Back Better Act. The legislation includes historic measures to strengthen American health care, lower insurance premiums, give Medicare the power to negotiate for lower drug prices, expand affordable coverage to millions by closing the Medicaid coverage gap, expand Medicare benefits, and invest $150 billion in home care for seniors and people with disabilities. Health care is a fundamental part of the Build Back Better agenda, and the plans to reduce costs and expand care are the top issues for voters. It is urgent that the Senate now move quickly to pass this historic legislation.
