      • “I strongly encourage every eligible Virginian who does not otherwise have health coverage to select a plan through the Marketplace. Emergencies happen, and everyone needs insurance,” said Governor McAuliffe. “Unfortunately, because of actions taken by the Trump administration, this open enrollment period only lasts for 45 days, and federal marketing to remind people to sign up or reenroll in their existing plans has been severely curtailed. However, despite efforts from Congress and the White House to undermine and sabotage the Affordable Care Act, it remains the law of the land.”
