Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) reminded and encouraged West Virginians to apply for health insurance coverage during the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Open Enrollment Period, which begins today, November 1st and ends January 15th, 2022. West Virginians who enroll by December 15th can expect their coverage to begin by January 1st, 2022.
“Starting today, West Virginians without health insurance can apply for quality, affordable health insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment period. The American Rescue Plan, which I voted for in March, includes funding to make healthcare more affordable by increasing premium tax credits, leading to lower premiums and cheaper health plans for West Virginians. The tax credits continue to provide more affordable healthcare to West Virginians today, and I encourage everyone without health insurance to visit to find a plan that works for you and your family,” said Senator Manchin.
The American Rescue Plan continues to provide additional financial assistance to West Virginians by lowering healthcare coverage premiums and expanding coverage options. This additional financial assistance allows 80% of Americans to find a plan for $10 or less per month.
West Virginia offers free enrollment assistance to all in-state residents through the WV Navigator. You can learn more at or call at 1-844-WV-CARES.
