Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will my quality of care be affected?

Health reform protects Medicare. Medicare will be made more financially secure and seniors who hit the prescription drug "donut hole" will be protected from high costs for their medicines.

Q: Will my quality of care be affected?

A: It will improve. 

  • The Act creates incentives for providing care that relies on teams of primary care doctors, specialists, and nurses working together to coordinate and monitor care more effectively.  These new models encourage doctors to better coordinate a patient’s care, track prescriptions, and avoid duplication of treatments or tests. This will help improve the quality of care, prevent medical complications, and save money.
  • The bill will also provide stronger incentives for hospitals to reduce avoidable and harmful readmissions, cut down on medical errors, and prevent healthcare acquired infections that occur too frequently.
