Get Covered 2021 is a national effort to promote COVID-19 safety and health insurance enrollment. It is about health equity for America’s diverse communities.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has been a lifeline for millions of Americans. The nation is at a pivotal time in health care with a new federal administration and renewed efforts to expand access to care and coverage. Get Covered 2021 is committed to advancing this extraordinary opportunity to build on the Affordable Care Act so everyone can have access to affordable, high-quality coverage and care.

The organizations and individuals who endorse Get Covered 2021 are unified in their commitment to ensuring Americans have coverage that keeps them safe, healthy and strong. This commitment is based on the recognition that responding effectively to COVID and getting everyone insured are critical to advancing health equity and addressing the disparities in health status and care delivery. Health equity begins with access to care, and access to care comes with having health insurance. Get Covered 2021 is committed to getting all Americans, who are eligible for coverage today, covered.

COVID-19 underscores why insurance matters — but not just because of the pandemic. Coverage can help people from all walks of life stay healthy, and it can provide a pathway to care for conditions like cancer, diabetes and others that affect our lives and those of our loved ones.
