The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is designed to give more Americans access to reliable, high-quality medical care, while advancing programs to hold costs in check. Provisions of the law include: insurance subsidies for consumers; transparent exchanges to shop for insurance; new rules protecting consumers from insurance abuses; increased Medicare payments for physicians; and more.
The official government website for the ACA is HealthCare.gov.
