Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a comprehensive health care reform law enacted in March 2010. The health care law offers rights and protections that make coverage more fair and easy to understand. Some rights and protections apply to plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace or other individual insurance, some apply to job-based plans, and some apply to all health coverage. The protections outlined below may not apply to grandfathered health insurance plans.
