President Obama signs Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law

By now, you have probably heard a lot about health care reform. The Arc of the United States posted a short summary of the health care legislation on their website. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R.3590) would expand health care coverage to most Americans, preventing insurance companies from excluding people with pre-existing conditions, expanding Medicaid to cover more people, and eliminating caps in private insurance policies.

This legislation would prevent insurance companies from denying coverage, giving individuals with disabilities better access to health care.
