Expanded Coverage


A significant goal of the Affordable Care Act is near universal coverage. To accomplish this, a mandate requiring most U.S. citizens and legal residents to have health insurance is included. There are individual regulations that support this initiative by:
•    Expanding Medicaid coverage •    Removing bans on coverage of individuals with pre-existing conditions •    Setting required groundwork for the formation of state-based health insurance exchanges •    Supplying assistance for individuals to procure insurance •    Expanding coverage of dependents up to age 26
