Biden announces steps to expand access to health care

President Biden on Thursday announced several steps intended to expand access to health care, including an executive order to temporarily reopen the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplace for Americans seeking coverage during the pandemic.

Biden also directed federal agencies to reexamine Trump administration policies that he said have made it more difficult to enroll in Medicaid and protect people with preexisting medical conditions. In a second order, he sought to reverse Trump policies that restricted access to abortion both in the United States and overseas.

Biden said the aim of both actions was to “undo the damage Trump has done.”
