Rep. Sobecki Announces Open Enrollment for Affordable Care Act

Open enrollment runs from now until Dec. 15, with health care coverage beginning January 1, 2021

This week, State Rep. Lisa Sobecki (D-Toledo) announced that open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has started. Ohioans have until Dec. 15, 2020 to apply, and health insurance coverage will begin Jan. 1, 2021.

"Nearly 8 percent of my district does not have health insurance, and affordable healthcare during this pandemic is more important than ever. I encourage everyone who needs health insurance to apply for it at healthcare.gov today," said Rep. Sobecki.

This year's open enrollment period comes as Republicans continue to fight to repeal the ACA and its popular patient protections. The U.S. Supreme Court held oral arguments on the fate of the ACA Nov. 10.

Meanwhile, Ohio House Democrats continue to call on Republican leaders to protect Ohioans' healthcare by advancing the bipartisan Pre-Existing Condition Protection Act, which would write into Ohio law several of the ACA's popular patient protections, including coverage for those with pre-existing conditions.

For more information or to apply for healthcare coverage, visit healthcare.gov.
