Obamacare & The Affordable Care Act
Yes, Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act are the same thing. But it's up to you to decide if it's a good fit for you.
There’s a lot of misinformation out there about what Obamacare health insurance is all about. So let’s start with a simple definition. The official name for this is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Kind of a mouthful, which is why more often than not you’ll hear it referred to as Obamacare, the ACA, or the Obama healthcare plan.
So, what exactly does that mean?
Ultimately, it’s a reform of the world of health insurance meant to give Americans their best shot at affordable, comprehensive, and easy-to-obtain insurance. And it does not mean that everyone needs to get that insurance through Obamacare health plans (a common misconception!).
Another misconception: that you’re not paying attention or working hard enough to understand ACA insurance. The truth is, the affordable healthcare act has undergone so many changes, updates, setbacks, and improvements over the years that it’s nearly impossible to stay up to date without some help.
And what does that mean for me?
