If You're Uninsured or Buying Your Own Insurance

If You're Uninsured or Buying Your Own Insurance

If you are self-employed or working in a small business, buying insurance for yourself and your family—or have no insurance at all—you are among those that the new law helps the most. Millions of Americans currently pay the highest rates for health coverage because they buy it on their own. Others—especially those ages 50 to 64—can’t buy coverage at any price because they have preexisting medical conditions. Making private insurance more accessible and fairer for consumers is a central goal of the new law.Back to Article
