The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, was signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. It includes a broad range of reforms designed to make health insurance better and more affordable, rein in health costs and expand coverage among America's nearly 50 million uninsured. The act requires most Americans to have health insurance or face a penalty. It also makes it illegal for insurers to set dollar limits on coverage, drop you if you get sick or charge more or deny coverage because of a pre-existing condition.
