Affordable Care Act (ACA)

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), more commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is federal legislation signed into law by President Obama in March 2010.  This comprehensive healthcare reform law aims to expand Americans' access to affordable healthcare insurance.  Some of the changes resulting from the law are already in effect, and others will go into effect over a period of years.
