About the Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as "Obamacare", has helped millions of people get health care coverage. Before the ACA, health insurance was unaffordable and unavailable for many. Now, with Obamacare, if you meet certain qualifications, the government will help pay for your monthly premiums and out-of-pocket cost. And for those who have preexisting medical conditions, you can no longer be denied coverage under Obamacare.
