To address this problem, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has teamed up with several organizations to boost the enrollment of Black Americans in health insurance coverage via HealthCare.gov, according to a press release from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. “Black Americans are clearly taking advantage of the current special enrollment period to access quality health care coverage,” said Xavier Becerra, HHS Secretary. More than 500,000 Americans applied for health coverage during the first six weeks of the special enrollment period. To sign up for coverage or see whether you qualify for more affordable health insurance, visit HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov to check out 2021 plans and prices.
