Senator Tom Harkin says the Affordable Care Act has proved a success for Iowans.
During the enrollment period nearly 30,000 Iowans signed up for insurance using the federal exchange. Of those, 84-percent qualified for a federal subsidy to reduce the cost of insurance.
“More than 29,163 Iowans, many of whom could not previously afford or have access to health insurance, will now have the peace of mind that quality, comprehensive health coverage brings, thanks to the ACA,” Sen. Harkin said.
Nationwide more than 8-million people signed up.
