The National MS Society believes that all individuals regardless of health or disability, employment status, age, claims history or risk should have access to affordable, quality health care. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, our current health care system will improve by increasing access to health care coverage, helping keep costs down, and offering new protections for people who have health insurance.
Understanding the new health care law can be tricky because of the intricate and multi-faceted provisions in the law. We want to help you understand what it means for you and your family so that you can be an informed consumer. A poll conducted by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation found that many Americans are unaware of or confused by major provisions in the law. The Kaiser Family Foundation has created a new interactive feature in order to help people understand the impact of the Affordable Care Act will have on their lives. We urge to click here to check it out.
Additionally, the Kaiser Family Foundation has created an animated video to show people how their health insurance coverage could change as the new health care reform law continues to be implemented. Click here to watch the video and better understand the reform from real life situations.
