Need for the Course

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has increased the number of people covered by insurance and helped reduce health care costs. Building on the progress and continued implementation of ACA is needed to make further progress. By making health coverage more affordable and accessible and, therefore, increasing the number of Americans with coverage, by funding community-based public health and prevention programs, and supporting research and tracking on key health measures, the ACA is reducing disparities in health insurance coverage, increasing access to preventive care, improving health outcomes and reducing the rate of growth in the nation’s health spending. The ACA does all of these while also preventing discrimination of people with pre-existing conditions and prohibiting insurers from charging women more for their care.
