The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Increasing Health Care Coverage and Accessibility



The law seeks to ensure access to affordable health care for all Americans and to require insurance companies to provide coverage for a comprehensive list of services, including habilitation and rehabilitation. Many of the mandates that expand access and coverage are being implemented at the state level, through state insurance commissioners and/or state public health agencies.
