TUESDAY, Dec. 15, 2020 (HealthDay News) — A rush to register for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was expected Tuesday as the open enrollment deadline for the ACA in 36 states that use HealthCare.gov looms.

The Dec. 15 deadline in those three dozen states is for coverage that begins Jan. 1, while 14 other states and Washington, D.C., have later dates, the Associated Press reported.

Interest in the annual insurance sign-ups has increased as the country struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic, according to advocates and analysts.

“The safety net is working,” Chris Sloan, of the consulting firm Avalere Health, told the AP. He said next year’s enrollment in the ACA could be greater than this year’s 11.4 million people. “I think it’s just reflective of the need being greater for people who have lost their jobs and need to find some other form of health insurance,” he added.
