“Healthcare Reform 101,” written by Rick Panning (2014), is a wonderful article that describes, in an easy-to-understand language, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, signed into law March 23, 2010. The main goal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was to provide affordable, quality healthcare to Americans while simultaneously reducing some of the country’s economic problems. Two areas will be covered throughout this paper. The first section will include a summary of the major points and highlights of Panning’s (2014) article, including an introduction to the ACA, goals of the signed legislation, provided coverage, and downfalls of the current healthcare system. The second part will be comprised of a professional
President Donald Trump has faced a tough opposition in his efforts to fulfill his campaign promise on health care. Trump had earlier promised that he will repeal the Obamacare immediately he took oath of office. However, things seem not to work to help him achieve his agenda within his first hundred days in office. But he needs to get the two opposed factions of his republican party if he is to succeed about repealing Obamacare. The two factions namely the conservatives and moderates are derailing the repealing process.
The Health Care Choice Act of 2017 (HCCA) is legislation designed to modify US policy related to the federal approach to health care. HCCA is designed to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and some provisions of the Healthcare and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010. HCCA also addresses the Public Health Service Act (PHCA) to support interstate healthcare coverage where a health insurer can insure from one state to an individual in another, and that the laws of the health insurer’s state are the laws which apply. The law exempts insurers from the laws of the secondary state (the state of an insured, if they live in another state than the insurer) (“H.R. 314”, 2017).

The Affordable Care Act: Bad For Some, Great For Millions For sometime, many US citizens have not had the resources to acquire an adequate health insurance plan. Although faced by many oppositions, the US government has found a solution, The Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare”, is a US healthcare reform law that focuses mainly on providing more Americans with access to an affordable health insurance. The Affordable Care Act is said to expand the affordability, quality, and availability of private and public health insurance through consumer protections, regulations, subsidies, taxes, insurance exchanges, and other reforms. Signed into law by President Obama in March 2010, hence the nickname “Obamacare”, the
The Affordable Care Act is a health-care reform bill that was put in place by President Barack Obama in 2010, but is being reevaluated because of the election of President Donald Trump in 2017. In 2010, Barack Obama implemented his plan to make health-care more affordable for everyone in the United States, whereas this health-care bill was only made in order to assist people in poverty afford health-care. When originally passed, the Affordable Care Act was being passed to improve the quality of care being offered to patients on Medicaid. The original plan also included four different payment plans for insurance through the government. According to Tamara Thompson in the introduction of the anthology, The Affordable Care Act, the Affordable
Obama Care also known as the Affordable Care Act signed in by president Barack Obama in 2010, This was to insure that all the Americans will have free access to medical care if they got sick and it would will help reduce the growth of healthcost spending in the country, hence in economic and stability growth among the citizens of America. Right now in the USA the ObamaCare law is a permanent part of the landscape, The USA republicans said that, despite the high court decision upholding various subsidies, the law itself remains the largest and dangerous threat to health care. Although it has its own benefits, Obamacare is increasing costs for hardworking families. Republicans argue that many people have to pay higher costs or see their former policies canceled. Which is leading to poor economy and increasing of debts and deaths within the country.
It works to make health insurance more affordable for Americans, and essentially, improve the healthcare system in the US. But, many people oppose this healthcare act because they believe that the government should not force people to get insured, and pay a penalty for not doing so. However, one has to realise that although they may not have
Health care in the United States costs people more than it does the citizens of any of the other modernized country in the world. This means it is logical that the national government would make reforms to improve the situation for all people. However, in a country with a constitution granting freedom to the people, a plan such as Obamacare calls into question just how far the government is allowed to extend beyond these promised rights in in order to assist the people. The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was officially passed on March 23, 2010.
Affordable Care Act Whitnee West Western Governors University AFFORDABLE CARE ACT On March 23, 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) into law. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), or more commonly called Obamacare, became one of the most debated topics around. Prior to the law going into effect there were about 45 million Americans uninsured and with rising health care premiums this number is on the rise. Proponents of the health-care legislation have called it a “landmark legislation” making health care more affordable by reigning in the costs to the people and the economy.
Healthcare coverage has become quite a huge challenge in the nation. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2010 has made significant changes in the healthcare industry such as having payment reforms that are tied to quality measures, accountable care organizations, value-based reimbursements and more stringent measures in place to counter healthcare fraud. However, despite the encouraging efforts, the fate of Medicare and Medicaid is in limbo. From the articles assigned for the module, I am more inclined to share my thoughts on Medicaid.
Before the Affordable Care Act was put into work, over 45 million Americans were uninsured. The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was then made to help those who were uninsured. It allowed people with financial struggles with the same opportunity as everyone else to have a healthcare plan. Even though the law was passed in 2010, it took a full year of back and forth to get it passed in the Senate. Obamacare may help you get coverage, but charge you an annual fee if you don’t have one.
In the United States, Medicare is the program supports people over age 65 with medical care. It also provides support for persons with certain disabilities and people of all ages who have kidney failure. Medicaid is a state administered program that provides medical support for a broad range of people. However, each state administers Medicaid individually and this creates inconsistencies in the program across the country. There are specific rules for judging just how much money someone receiving Medicaid can make and be eligible.
