Obamacare: What you need to know

Wondering what Obamacare means for you?

Here’s a quick rundown of how the Affordable Care Act is already making health care better—and is on track to do even more:

  1. Young Americans ages 18 through 26 can now stay on their parents’ insurance plans.

  2. Insurance companies now offer many preventive services for free, including flu shots, checkups, cancer screenings, and cholesterol checks.

  3. Insurance companies will no longer be able to charge a woman more than a man for the same coverage.

  4. The Medicare doughnut hole is closing, saving the seniors who fell into this coverage gap an average of $600 each on their prescriptions last year.

  5. By 2014, no one can be denied insurance due to a pre-existing condition.
