DPNM Statement on Trump’s Decision Not to Allow ACA Enrollment During COVID-19 Pandemic

President Trump announced yesterday  that his administration would not allow Americans to enroll in Affordable Care Act (ACA) policies during the coronavirus pandemic, despite floating the idea last week. By failing to create a special enrollment period, the Trump administration could block millions of uninsured Americans from seeking coverage now that the national situation has drastically changed. 

This is the latest in a series of Trump administration attacks on the ACA, even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread through the country. 

DPNM Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s ongoing attempts to restrict access to health care: 

‚ÄúPresident Trump has spent his presidency trying to undermine the Affordable Care Act at the expense of the health and wellbeing of millions of Americans. As we face the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to be working more diligently than ever to ensure that every American has access to quality, affordable health care. New Mexicans deserve steady and compassionate leadership in this time of crisis, and instead this president has made it clear that he cannot be trusted to put hardworking families first. This kind of chaotic and inconsistent policy is exactly why New Mexicans are ready to put a Democrat in the White House in 2020.‚Ä̬†
