The Affordable Care Act
Originally at the turn of the century, many U.S. citizens opted not to purchase health care coverage. Many had pre-existing conditions that made it difficult for them to afford the premiums for their available plans. Others also waived the chance because they couldn’t fit the high costs for insurance into their budgets.However, in July of 2009, the House of Representatives proposed a plan to reform the American health care system. And in March of the following year, President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. Nicknamed “Obamacare” or shortened to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it overhauled the pre-existing American medical insurance system.
It lowered the costs of health insurance across the board, making it more accessible to citizens living without medical coverage. It’s generally seen as an alternative for those under 65 to cover their health care needs. There are subsidiaries that you may be eligible for that’ll help pay all or part of the plan’s monthly premiums based on a set of requirements.
