Hoyer Statement on the Closing Days of Open Enrollment for 2019

Press Release, Office of Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer

WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the closing days of open enrollment for 2019 on Healthcare.gov, which ends on Saturday, December 15: 

“Americans have until Saturday at midnight to visit www.Healthcare.gov and explore their options for affordable health insurance coverage through the state and federal marketplaces.  The Trump Administration is doing everything possible to keep Americans from learning about the range of quality, affordable plans available, but millions have already visited the site or called (800) 318-2596 to find out if they can save on monthly premiums or obtain coverage that better meets their needs.  Many may be eligible for cost-saving measures that bring premiums down substantially, including 4.2 million currently uninsured Americans who will be able to obtain coverage for no monthly premium at all.  Even if someone is already covered, it is worth checking www.Healthcare.gov to see if additional savings are available. 

“House Democrats ran on protecting the Affordable Care Act from repeal and bringing the cost of health care and prescription drugs down, and we won a strong mandate to do so in the 116th Congress.  No matter how hard the Trump Administration tries to sabotage the Affordable Care Act, we will stand up and fight for every American’s access to quality, affordable coverage.  I urge everyone to visit www.Healthcare.gov or call (800) 318-2596 before this Saturday’s deadline to see what coverage options are available and get covered.”

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
