RICHMOND, Va. (WVIR) – Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said the number of Americans currently with health insurance is the lowest amount in history, at about 8.2%.
He supports the Medicare X Choice Act, something he says will help.
Kaine says the law would provide a choice at a reasonable price for people. It is designed so that uninsured people become insured even if they are self-employed or work for an employer that does not offer benefits.
“Millions of Americans will buy health insurance on exchanges that were put in place after the Affordable Care Act. Insurance companies offer policies on exchanges,” Kaine said.
The law is also championed by Colorado Senator Michael Bennet.
He and Kaine think about a million people could get insurance through this option.
