“Across Central Virginia, working families, seniors, and small business owners are struggling with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing economic crisis. Now more than ever, they need stability in the health care marketplace,” Spanberger said in the release. “As the number of Seventh District residents with pre-existing conditions continues to grow, we need to make sure everyone is aware of their coverage options. With only a few more weeks in the open enrollment period, I hope everyone will take time to review their plan and look at all their options for 2021, so they can make the best decision for themselves and their family.”
