Kildee urges families to sign up for ACA ahead of December 15 deadline
GENESEE COUNTY, Mich. – The Senate's tax bill in the nation's capital looks to eliminate the fine Americans pay for not buying health insurance.
Still, Congressman Dan Kildee is encouraging people to sign up for health care under the affordable care act.
Monday Kildee stopped by the Genesee Health Plan.
During the discussion, the congressman talked about sign up changes under the Trump Administration.
For example, this year people have a shorter window to enroll, that closes December 15.
The website is also down on Sundays.
“We really encourage people to protect their families to make sure they have coverage. You can't plan for a health emergency but what you can do is make sure if one does occur you're going to be healthy and protected with coverage,” said Kildee.
Congressman Kildee says subsidies are still in place and claims 8 out of 10 people qualify for help.
There are concerns though, if the senate tax bill passes, it could lead to less people signing up.
