President Biden Expands Affordable Care Act Enrollment Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

HeadlineJan 29, 2021

President Biden signed an executive order Thursday restoring mandates of the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid that were undermined under President Trump. Biden’s order also adds a new special enrollment period for people to purchase a healthcare plan through the federal insurance marketplace. That period runs from February 15 through May 15. 

President Joe Biden: “There is nothing new that we’re doing here, other than restoring the Affordable Care Act and restoring the Medicaid to the way it was before Trump became president.”
