Enroll America Statement on HHS Report

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, March 16, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Anne Filipic, President of Enroll America, issued the following statement regarding the report released today by the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

“After working tirelessly over the first two enrollment periods to connect uninsured Americans with their new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act, we celebrate today’s news that 16.4 million Americans have gained health insurance since the law’s passage. Not only are the sheer numbers impressive, but also we can see the law making a real impact on the uninsured rate, especially for Latinos and African-Americans. As we approach the five-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, I can say there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing millions more Americans who can now lead healthier and more secure lives because they have health coverage. While we still have more work to do to reach those who are still uninsured and make sure the newly covered retain their coverage, today we take a moment to savor the genuine progress that we’ve made.”
