Affordable Care Act Goes Into Effect in 50 Days

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

The Affordable Care Act, which requires all Americans to be insured, goes into effect in October. Erin Knott, Michigan Citizen Action Deputy Director, talks with Craig Fahle about what citizens can expect, and how to negotiate the process of becoming insured.

The ACA was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010. The act is intended to reform the health insurance landscape in the US by creating exchanges and adding protections for preexisting conditions and gender.
