WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Obama administration officials say they're starting a private campaign to encourage people to sign up for coverage next year under the Affordable Care Act.
Open enrollment begins November 1st.
The Trump administration has cut the ad budget for the Obama health law, as well as grants to outside organizations that are supposed to help consumers enroll.
Republican attempts to repeal the law have proven futile so far, but President Donald Trump hasn't changed his view that the program is a "disaster."
The former Obama officials say they'll focus on young adults, encouraging consumers to sign up for government-backed private health insurance because of the subsidies available.
