The Affordable Care Act and the Health Insurance Marketplace
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, putting in place reforms that improve access to affordable health coverage and protect consumers from abusive insurance company practices. Consumers now have access to a wide-range of health plans and may be eligible for subsidies through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicaid, CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) or the state Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP 2.0).
