Executive Order Aims to Boost ACA Exchanges, Medicaid

President Joe Biden on Jan. 28 launched his Affordable Care Act-centric health insurance agenda with an executive order that will reopen the federal health exchange for a special enrollment period. The administration also directed federal agencies to roll back widely criticized changes to Medicaid as part of a broader review of Trump administration regulations.

The new executive order, which the administration framed as a pandemic relief measure, demonstrates the administration’s emphasis on expanding coverage through the ACA. The special enrollment period (SEP) will run from Feb. 15 to May 15 and will be bolstered by a more aggressive effort to promote enrollment through advertising.
