    Jane: Medicaid Changed Her Life
    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) protects and strengthens Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). In 2011 more than 1.5 million children gained health coverage through Medicaid and CHIP, bringing the number of uninsured children in America to the lowest on record. Under the ACA, in 2014 Medicaid will see the largest expansion since its creation in 1965, and Americans with incomes below 133% of the federal poverty level will be eligible for Medicaid coverage. This is crucial for children like Jane who have health conditions that require surgery and hospitalization. In addition, thanks to the ACA Jane will not have to worry that insurance companies in the future will deny her coverage because of a pre-existing condition. Let's celebrate the second anniversary of the ACA and important health care gains for children and young adults.

    Affordable Care Act Fact: Pre-existing Conditions Covered
    Insurance companies used to refuse to cover children with pre-existing conditions. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) prohibited that and has already helped millions of families. For Malcolm and his family it has brought tremendous relief. His parents' insurance company can no longer deny him healthcare, limit his medicine and medical care or set lifetime caps on coverage. Let's celebrate the second anniversary of the ACA and important health care gains for children and young adults.
