The “Affordable Care Act” (ACA, also called “Obama Care”) is the name for the comprehensive health care reform law and its amendments . The law addresses the coverage of health insurance, healthcare costs, and preventive care. The ACA features three main objectives: 1) to make affordable health insurance available to more people who are with household incomes between 100% and 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL); 2) to expand the Medicaid program to cover all adults with income below 138% of the FPL; and 3) to support innovative medical care delivery methods designed to lower the costs of health care generally .
