San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the start of open enrollment in the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplaces, which runs in most states from November 1 until December 15:

“Starting today, Americans across the country will once again have the opportunity to enroll in affordable, quality health insurance for themselves and their families.  

“While two years of Republicans’ health care sabotage has made insurance much more expensive than it needs to be, eight out of ten people in the marketplaces qualify for financial help that will keep their premiums low.  For most people, that assistance means they can find plans for under $75 a month. 

“Democrats have made lowering health care costs and prescription drug prices a top priority of our For The People agenda for the majority.  We will continue to work for lower premiums and out-of-pocket costs for families and relentlessly defend the vital protections for people with pre-existing conditions guaranteed under the law.”
