Transcript of ACA Information Meeting

What is ACA?
In March 2010, President Obama signed comprehensive health reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), into law. The law makes preventive care—including family planning and related services—more accessible and affordable for many Americans.
Since the Affordable Care Act has been implemented
Children can no longer be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition.
There are no more lifetime dollar limits on coverage
Insurance companies can’t drop your coverage when you get sick
Young adults now have coverage under their parents plans until the age of 26
Now there is access to free preventive services.
