HealthDay Offers 5-Day Series on the Affordable Care Act
NORWALK, Conn., (September 23, 2013) -- Starting today and running all week, HealthDay will publish a five-part series examining the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama's landmark yet controversial health-reform law that will affect virtually all Americans.
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, aims, among other changes, to offer expanded health-care coverage to millions of Americans currently without insurance. It seeks to do this, in part, by requiring most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a tax. Several key provisions of the law take effect Oct. 1.
The stories will focus on different segments of the U.S. population and how the law will affect them.
