Van Hollen Statement on Biden Executive Actions to Strengthen Americans’ Access to Health Care

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement regarding President Biden’s executive actions to strengthen Americans’ access to health care:

“Every American deserves access to quality, affordable health care – period. While we have much work to do on this front, these emergency steps by President Biden will help ensure more Americans are covered as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. I wholly support the President’s actions today directing our agencies to bolster Medicaid and shore up the Affordable Care Act – in addition to opening a Special Enrollment Period for more Americans to secure health insurance. Going forward, we must work together to undo the damage of the Trump Administration, expand access to health care through a public option, and reduce costs across-the-board.”
