The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) improved access to health coverage for more than 20 million Americans, including older adults.
We believe that all Americans should have access to high-quality, affordable healthcare coverage. It is essential that we maintain gains in the number of Americans who are covered by health insurance, and that we preserve elements of health reform that are important to older Americans and Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.
