WEDNESDAY, March 3, 2021 (HealthDay News) — More than 200,000 Americans signed up for health insurance in the first two weeks after HealthCare.gov was reopened for a three-month special enrollment period, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The reopening is part of President Joe Biden’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and applications for coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will be accepted through May 15, the Associated Press reported.

CMS figures show that more than 206,000 people signed up for coverage from Feb. 15 to 28, but the numbers are partial because they only include the 36 states served by the federal HealthCare.gov insurance market. National enrollment will be higher when totals from states that have their own insurance websites are counted later, the AP reported.

HealthCare.gov offers subsidized private health insurance under the ACA, mainly to working Americans with low and medium incomes.
