More than 300,000 Michigan residents enrolled in a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace’s latest open enrollment period.
Enrollment for 2022 followed a trend from recent years as more people turn to the marketplace for comprehensive health insurance.
“Every Michigander deserves affordable, comprehensive health insurance, and thanks to record-breaking enrollment under the Affordable Care Act, more than 303,000 Michiganders now have the coverage and peace of mind that comes with a high-quality health plan,” said Governor Whitmer, in a prepared statement.
Most Michiganders will have to wait until Nov. 1 to enroll in a health plan if they missed the 2022 open enrollment deadline, though there are exceptions for qualifying life events like childbirth, adoption, job loss, moving or divorce.
