How Does the Affordable Care Act Makes Health care more Accessible?
The Affordable Care Act makes Health Care more accessible by:
(1) Providing Qualified Individuals with marketplace financial assistance by providing advance payments of the Premium Tax Credit and cost sharing reductions
(2) Creating the Health Insurance Marketplace through which qualified individuals may compare and purchase plans, and eligible Individuals who do not have access to government sponsored plans, affordable employer sponsored coverage or certain other types of coverage can receive financial assistance
(3) Expanding Medicaid in States that took the Opportunity to cover individuals whose household incomes are at or below 138% of the federal poverty level.
