More than 500,000 Americans signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in February and March, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced last week.
The signups were part of a special enrollment period (SEP) announced by the Biden Administration as it sought to address the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the economic fallout that accompanied the health crisis. HHS data shows that more than 528,000 Americans signed up for the ACA between Feb. 15 and March 31.
