Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. The Court's ruling means that millions of Americans will have access to affordable, quality health care -- but Coloradans have already started to feel the impact of this historic legislation. Here’s a breakdown of how Coloradans have already benefitted from reform:
- 1.9 million Coloradans no longer have a lifetime limit on their health insurance plans -- so insurers can no longer cut you off from important treatment when you need it the most.
- 1.3 million Coloradans can now benefit from preventive care through their health insurance plans.
- 291,000 young children in Colorado with pre-existing conditions now have access to health insurance.
- 50,000 young Coloradans, ages 19 to 25, were able to remain insured under their parents' insurance.
