On March 24th 2017, the health care bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act was withdrawn because there was not enough support for the bill to pass. Speaker Paul Ryan said “Obamacare is the law of the land and this will be the case for the foreseeable future.”
It’s more important than ever for us to educate consumers about the ACA and enroll them into coverage both during the current Special Enrollment Period and next Open Enrollment Period in order to counter the message that the ACA is in a death spiral. We want the ACA to succeed in order to ensure health insurance coverage for North Carolinians who need it the most.
