The Affordable Care Act is still in place for 2017, and as our friends at the NC Justice Center remind us, nothing has changed for this year. Plans, prices, deadlines, and requirements to have coverage are the same.
The deadline for open enrollment is January 31. To get free, expert help enrolling, visit Keep NC Covered or call 1-855-733-3711.
Please continue to contact our Senators and Congressional Representatives to let them know that health care matters to North Carolinians. Those determined to undo programs that save people’s lives want to believe they have a mandate to do so. By speaking up, we make it clear they do not.
The Council is a part of a coalition of organizations working to keep desperately needed health care provisions fully in place and to expand Medicaid. The most vulnerable among us would also be the most harmed by changes under consideration. Too many are already suffering. Let our elected officials know that affordable health care that is available to everyone is a moral obligation.
