Get the Facts Straight on Health Reform
There's a lot of misinformation out there. For too long, too many hard working Americans paid the price for policies that handed free rein to insurance companies. President Obama’s health reform law gives hard working families the security they deserve. The Affordable Care Act holds insurance companies accountable, lowers health care costs, gives Americans more freedom and control in their health care choices and improves the quality of care.
Health insurance reform will NOT use your tax dollars to fund abortions.
Under the new health care law, insurers can no longer impose lifetime dollar limits on care and annual limits are being phased out by 2014.
Businesses will NOT suffer under health reform
More than 5.1 million people on Medicare have saved over $3.1 billion on prescription drugs, including a one-time $250 rebate check to seniors who fell into the prescription coverage gap or “donut hole” in 2010, and a 50 percent discount on brand-name drugs worth an average of $604 per person in 2011.
The Affordable Care Act will help bring down the cost of health care.
Health reform will NOT lead to a government takeover of health care.
Employers will not stop offering insurance to their workers when the law is implemented.
In every State and for the first time ever, insurance companies are required to publicly justify their actions if they want to raise rates by 10 percent or more and more states have the authority to reject unreasonable premium increases.
The Affordable Care Act‘s individual responsibility requirement IS constitutional.
