Guide: How Can Reform Congregations Help Promote Affordable Health Care?

Many provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, signed into law in March 2010, are taking effect in 2014. More than 100 million Americans with pre-existing conditions will be ensured eligibility for coverage, individuals will no longer face yearly caps on essential benefits, and more. More than 6 million Americans have signed up for new plans through the healthcare exchanges, and enrollment continues through the end of March.

Today, 49.9 million Americans (26.2 percent of the population) do not have health insurance coverage. On March 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act became law, paving the way for reform of the major shortcomings in our nation’s health insurance system. But now this law is under attack.
Public health care programs ensure that low-income families and the elderly have access to comprehensive medical treatment and care.
Our tradition teaches us that human life is of infinite value and that the preservation of life supersedes almost all other considerations.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will extend health coverage to 32 million uninsured Americans and strengthen existing coverage. Find out how health care reform will impact your congregation and its members, and learn what you can do to educate your community about the law.
