Insurance & the Affordable Care Act (ACA)


In the early 1900s, it didn’t cost much to see a doctor, and your doctor would even make house calls! But as good as that sounds, in many cases, the doctor couldn’t do very much to help. Since then, advances in science and technology have dramatically improved healthcare. Unfortunately, the downside is that healthcare costs much more now than it did then.

Today in the U.S., quality healthcare often costs so much that it’s too expensive for most of us to afford it on our own, so we need health insurance. Explore the items listed below to learn more about health insurance coverage in the U.S. and how you can keep or find the best and most affordable health insurance for you and your family.
