Congressman DeSaulnier’s Statement on the Start of Open Enrollment for 2018
Washington, DC – Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) issued the following statement on the first day of the open enrollment period of Covered California. Beginning today through January 31, 2018, Californians can either sign up for or renew their health insurance for 2018 on Covered California’s website.
“Despite the campaign to sabotage the ACA by President Trump and Republican Leadership, the insurance marketplaces are open and accepting new enrollees. In addition to holding dozens of votes to repeal the ACA and withholding health care funding, Republican Leadership has now made this year’s open enrollment shorter than ever before and complicated access to critical information. My offices are here to help. If anyone in Contra Costa County has questions about open enrollment or their health coverage, please call my office and we will connect you with resources to help you,” said Congressman DeSaulnier.
Due to the success of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more than 5 million Californians have gained affordable health insurance coverage to protect against unexpected medical costs—bringing the uninsured rate in California to the lowest level in history.
