The value of health insurance is so important that our lawmakers wanted to make sure every American could get it, affordably and without a lot of fine print exceptions. Insurers now can't refuse to cover you or charge you more just because you have a chronic or pre-existing condition. They can't charge women more than men.

There are many other important aspects of the Affordable Care Act law. Learn more about what all this means to you with the resources below, put together in one convenient place to help you stay informed.

What the health care law means for you

Preventative Services Covered at No Cost: You and other insured family members can get important medical tests and screenings without having to pay a co-payment or co-insurance or meet your deductible.

Buy Insurance on the Health Insurance Marketplace: Buy health insurance in a new and more cost-effective way through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Investment in Community Health Centers: The law will expand investment in community health centers, which provide preventative and primary care services regardless of your health status or income.
