The law helps by protecting consumers and keeping things fair. Soon there will be no annual or lifetime limits on benefits and you won't be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition.
The law also supports families, allowing children up to age 26 stay on their parents' insurance plans.
There are now a number of preventive screening services for men, women and children available to help the whole family stay healthy.
By adding more covered wellness visits and working to eliminate the Medicare Part D coverage gap, or doughnut hole, the health law is improving Medicare significantly.
Helping small businesses, the health care law provides tax credits to business owners who provide insurance to their employees and also expands insurance options for businesses that do not yet offer insurance coverage.
Getting coverage is easier with insurance exchanges — marketplaces where you can shop for health insurance options. Whether you need coverage or just want to know your options, exchanges will be useful resources for you.
Our easy-to-use Health Law Guide can help you and your family make more informed health decisions, whether or not you already have coverage.
