Affordable Care Act and People with Disabilities
- The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the most significant overhaul of the healthcare system in the United States since 1965.
- The goal of the ACA is to reduce the number of uninsured Americans and improve the quality of healthcare.
- Through the law, health insurance marketplaces have been created across the country to provide affordable coverage to those who need or want it, and who are eligible.
