The Affordable Care Act: Understanding Federal Actions

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted in 2010 to provide health insurance for people who otherwise would not have healthcare coverage. The current federal government has vowed to repeal and replace the ACA, creating uncertainty and concern for millions of Americans, including hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers and their families. Repealing the ACA will jeopardize the lives and finances of millions of people.
