TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE
The health reforms are large and complicated, but there are certain provisions everyone knows about. However, even that knowledge is almost always vague, and that’s led to a lot of misperceptions about whom these provisions affect and at what cost.
Below are a series of short quizzes to take yourself and share with your friends on the following aspects of the health law:
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was intended to ensure that all American citizens had access to health care coverage. We were told in 2009 that 46 million people in the U.S. were uninsured. (NPR)
The new plans available under the Affordable Care Act come with different costs and different benefits than plans in the pre-ACA market.
According to public opinion polls, many people like the provision in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) that requires insurance companies to offer health care coverage to “children” up to age 26 as part of their parents’ insurance coverage.
How has the law affected the federal budget and our national economy?
What changes has the Affordable Care Act made to the Medicare program?
