WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Anne Filipic, president of Enroll America, issued the following statement regarding the Senate confirmation of Sylvia Mathews Burwell as Health and Human Services Secretary:

“As Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Sylvia Mathews Burwell will be a strong leader in the ongoing effort to expand health coverage to millions of Americans. The successful first open enrollment period gave us unprecedented data on the enrollment process, and I’m confident that a manager of Ms. Burwell’s experience and insight will use that information to make continued improvements to the enrollment experience, so that even more Americans can benefit from having affordable health coverage. We look forward to working with her to ensure that our staff, volunteers, and enrollment partners across the country have what they need to help consumers get covered in the coming years: maintenance and expansion of critical in-person assistance programs; ongoing improvements to the consumer experience on HealthCare.gov; and a clear, user-friendly renewal process for the millions of Americans who have already found coverage through Medicaid and the marketplace this year.”
