What is the Affordable Care Act (ACA)?

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (ACA) = OBAMACARE = HEALTH CARE REFORM

All of these terms refer to the Affordable Care Act.  It is a huge law that has many parts.  The first parts of the ACA went into effect in 2010, while the last major pieces will go into effect on January 1st, 2014.   Despite what many people say, the ACA will be fully implemented, so we need to be prepared for change.  The ACA will offer many people new options for affordable health insurance and it’s crucial that we are aware of those options!  Learn about the Health Insurance Marketplaces to understand more.
