Transcript of Affordable Care Act Overview

Affordable Care Act
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, putting in place comprehensive reforms that improve access to affordable health coverage for everyone and protect consumers from abusive insurance company practices.
If you already have health insurance, the only changes you will see under the law are new benefits, better protections from insurance company abuses, and more value for every dollar you spend on health care. If you like your plan you can keep it and you don’t have to change a thing due to the health care law.
If you are uninsured or don’t get your coverage through work, on October 1st the new Health Insurance Marketplace opens for business, allowing millions of Americans to comparison shop for a variety of quality, affordable plans that best meet their health care needs.
