  • Have more access to affordable healthcare — You may or may not have noticed this, but more than one million Americans who were previously uninsured or underinsured have the affordable healthcare they need since the program started in March.
  • Can afford insurance coverage — Because of the temporarily expanded tax subsidies available, unemployment benefit recipients are now eligible for subsidies and cost-sharing reductions during 2021.

  • Lack of accountability — The healthcare access that everyone is getting can bring about a lack of accountability which in turn may ultimately cost taxpayers nearly $45 billion when the dust settles.
  • Unverified enrollment eligibility — Some worry that the present administration won’t ever verify enrollment eligibility for the expanded subsidies, even for small business health insurance holders.
