Today, 20 million more Americans have insurance because of the ACA, bringing our uninsured rate to an all-time low. Since the ACA was enacted, health care prices have been rising at the slowest rate in five decades. And with new protections and benefits, everyone’s insurance provides preventive services at no extra cost, can’t cap coverage, and isn’t allowed to discriminate based on pre-existing conditions.
This progress has changed people’s lives, but it’s important to remember that the ACA has always been about more than affordable, quality coverage. It gives us the tools to build a health care system that puts patients at the center. Some people call this effort Delivery System Reform, but you could also just call it “making health care work better.”
