Health Care Reform
The Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in March 2010. One key feature of the ACA law is that affordable health insurance exchanges or marketplaces, like MNsure, could be set up in every state. These marketplaces allow residents to shop and compare health plans, get free in-person enrollment help, find out if they qualify for tax credits or health programs, and enroll in a health plan.
