What's In The Health Care Reform Bill For You?

Without reform, the cost of health care for the average family of four is projected to rise $1,800 every year for years to come--and insurance companies will make more health care decisions.

America's middle class deserves better.  Here's what America's Affordable Health Choices Act means for you:

LOWER COSTS

  • No more co-pays or deductibles for preventive care
  • No more rate increases for pre-existing conditions, gender, or occupation
  • An annual cap on your out-of-pocket expenses
  • Group rates of a national pool if you buy your own plan
  • Guaranteed, affordable oral, hearing, and vision care for your kids

GREATER CHOICE

  • Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them
  • More choice, with a high quality public health insurance option competing with private insurers

HIGHER QUALITY

  • You and your doctors make health care decisions -- not insurance companies
  • More family doctors and nurses will enter the workforce, helping guarantee access
  • Mental health care must be covered

STABILITY & PEACE OF MIND

  • No more coverage denials for pre-existing conditions
  • No more lifetime limits on how much insurance companies will pay
  • No reason to ever make a job or life decision again based on health care coverage
