In March 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the largest overhaul of the health care system in our nation's history. Health care reform lowers the cost of health care, increases the number of health care providers, holds health insurance companies accountable, improves the quality of health care and extends health coverage to 32 million people. In this time of economic uncertainty and rising unemployment, health care reform provides much needed security to millions of Americans.
There is a lot to be done before the Affordable Care Act is fully implemented. Our Health Care Reform Resource Center provides important facts, timely up-dates, and specific data to help you navigate health care reform and make informed decisions.
APIAHF will continue to update the Health Care Reform Resource Center with additional analyses of health care reform as it affects our communities. Please continue to check this page for new information, and feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or suggestions you may have for the Health Care Reform Resource Center.
