Health Care Reform

Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), March 23, 2010 . This Act puts individuals, families and small business owners in control of their health care. It reduces premium costs for millions of working families and small businesses by providing hundreds of billions of dollars in tax relief – the largest middle class tax cut for health care in history. It also reduces what families will have to pay for health care by capping out-of-pocket expenses and requiring preventive care to be fully covered without any out-of-pocket expense. For Americans with insurance coverage who like what they have, they can keep it. Nothing in this act or anywhere in the bill forces anyone to change the insurance they have, period.

Americans without insurance coverage will be able to choose the insurance coverage that works best for them in a new open, competitive insurance market – the same insurance market that every member of Congress will be required to use for their insurance. The insurance exchange will pool buying power and give Americans new affordable choices of private insurance plans that have to compete for their business based on cost and quality. Small business owners will not only be able to choose insurance coverage through this exchange, but may receive a new tax credit to help offset the cost of covering their employees.

This keeps insurance companies honest by setting clear rules. The law also bans insurance companies from denying insurance coverage because of a person’s pre-existing medical conditions; while giving consumers new power to appeal insurance company decisions that deny doctor ordered treatments covered by insurance.
