A year ago today, President Obama signed the landmark Affordable Care Act into law. In just one year, the law has already given Americans more freedom and control over their health care choices and insurance companies no longer call all the shots. Now, you and your family may be eligible for important new benefits that will ensure you get the care you need at a more reasonable cost.
Here are some of the benefits you’ll get as a result of the new law:
New Coverage Choices
New Benefits if You Have Insurance
New Benefits for People with Medicare
This is only the beginning of a transformation of our health care system that puts you in the driver's seat. For more information on how you can get these benefits, visit our Better Benefits, Better Health Initiative.
