ACA Enrollments Climb in Dubuque, Going Against National Trend

Dubuque has bucked the nationwide trend for enrollment in the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplace. This year’s ACA enrollment period ended on Saturday with a decline in the number of nationwide sign-ups. But here in Dubuque, enrollment was up from last year. Administrators at the Crescent Community Health Center say they helped 260 people sign up for coverage. That’s an increase over last year of about 100. Crescent’s Angela Petsche chalks up the increase to more people being eligible, and some learning they could get a better plan through the ACA. Across the country, enrollments dropped by about 300,000 this year.
