How the Affordable Care Act will Benefit You

  • Topic Info:Did you know you have the right to ask your plan to reconsider a denial of payment for services?  Or that insurance companies can no longer limit or deny benefits to children under the age of 19, due to a pre-existing health condition?

    Healthcare.gov states that, "the Affordable Care Act puts in place strong consumer protections, provides new coverage options and gives you the tools you need to make informed choices about your health."

    Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard John F. Kennedy School of Government, Amitabh Chandra, provides a summary of the benefits and consumer protection in the coverage and important details from preventative care to pre-existing conditions.
