Health Care Plans
A healthcare plan, or health benefit plan, is an insurance policy that helps pay for medical care and services when you get sick or hurt. On March 22, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This law is also called the Affordable Care Act, healthcare law, and ObamaCare. This new law required all Americans to enroll in a healthcare plan with minimum essential coverage by March 31, 2014 or pay a tax penalty.
