ACA, also known as Obamacare, went through many challenges not only being signed into law but kept in the law. Former President Trump nearly dismantled the entire law. However, it remained intact once he left office and continued receiving support from former President Obama.

More from CNN:

Since leaving office, the former President has repeatedly touted the Affordable Care Act, which has proven increasingly popular in GOP-led states that have not expanded Medicaid to low-income adults.

Obama’s appearance also comes as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services launches advertising and outreach campaigns to spread the word about a new special enrollment period for low-income Americans who missed signing up for 2022 Affordable Care Act coverage.

A White House official said Obama is expected to “deliver remarks celebrating the success of the Affordable Care Act” and acknowledge Biden’s initiatives for cutting healthcare costs for millions of Americans, according to CNN.

Biden is expected to announce a proposal to fix the “family glitch” in ACA which he’s been working on since his first days in office, reported USA TODAY. The change to the law can also be done without Congress.

More about the proposal from USA TODAY:

The proposal: If a workplace plan for a whole family costs more than 10% of a family’s income, then the worker’s spouse and children could get help purchasing a private plan through the Obamacare marketplace.

The change, which would go into effect as early as next year, could allow an estimated 200,000 people without insurance to gain coverage, according to the White House.
