• Happy anniversary to the Affordable Care Act

    Two years ago today, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, his landmark health care reform legislation. The new law improves our current health care system by increasing availability of health care coverage for more Americans and introducing new protections for those who already have insurance.

    This means that:

      - Young adults can now stay on their parents’ health insurance until they are 26 years-old
          - Small businesses with fewer than 25 employees can be eligible for financial assistance in paying for health coverage
              - Insurance companies cannot deny coverage to a child because of a pre- existing condition
                  - New health plans must offer preventative and screening services like mammograms and colonoscopies at no cost to the patient
