The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, is the law signed by President Obama in 2010 that increased access to comprehensive and affordable healthcare coverage for more Americans than any other time in our history.
Compared to ALL other races, Black Americans face the greatest burden of serious health issues like heart disease, HIV, and diabetes due to chronic lack of services and other discriminatory factors.Many health issues we face can be prevented or managed with routine health services.
Affordable heathcare is the first step for us to have doctors and services we trust.
Obamacare makes the following provisions possible:
Obamacare open enrollment is November 1 to December 15, 2017. It is the ONLY time you can get insurance in the Health Insurance Marketplace
Coverage could be more affordable than you think—and there is a possibility to receive financial help. Last year, 8 in 10 people qualified for financial help—for most people, that meant they could find premiums between $50 and $100 per month.
