This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

March 2010 to help people with low income be covered with insurance for health care needs. They have three main goals, making affordable health insurance available to more people, expand the Medicaid program to cover all adults with income below 138% of the federal poverty level, and support innovative medical care methods designed to lower the cost of overall general health care. The ACA wants to make sure every individual has insurance so that they are given the opportunity to receive health care. Before the ACA insurance companies could deny applicants due to pre existing conditions so people with chronic illnesses where at severe risk for neglect because they were unable to afford any out of pocket care. The ACA provides preventative care such as health screenings and yearly labs and physicals to try and reduce hospital visits, life- threateneing diseases/ conditions, and slowing the rise of health care costs. For this to be possible and other insurance plans to accept patients with pre existing conditions the ACA taxed healthy patients nine out of the 12 months to assist in paying for these changes.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
