Affordable Care Act
For the last 50 years, Americans have faced challenges in navigating a health care system in which patients and caregivers have not always come first. Doctors were encouraged to focus on the amount of care they delivered, rather than how effectively they treated a patient’s big-picture health. Our nation spent more on health care per person than any other and costs were on the rise. Despite being home to some of the best medical schools in the world, and the leader in health research and discoveries, our people often had worse health outcomes.
With the Affordable Care Act (ACA), we took one of the most important steps toward a more accessible, affordable, and higher quality health care system in almost 50 years. In fact, since it became law, about 17.6 million uninsured people have gained coverage—the largest reduction in the uninsured in decades. This is a historic start, but there is more work to do.
Using the ACA’s new tools, we have an opportunity to seize this historic moment to transform our health care system into one that works better for the American people. We have a vision of a system that delivers better care, spends our dollars in a smarter way, and puts patients in the center of their care to keep them healthy. With new tools, we are increasingly trying to meet patients and their families where they are and make getting care more convenient for them.
