Increasing Access to Affordable Care

Increasing Access to Affordable Care

Millions of Americans have gained new access to more affordable health coverage and care.

 • Coverage for young adults: 3.1 million young adults who were uninsured have gained coverage by being able to stay on their parent’s health plan, giving their families peace of mind.

 • Access to free preventive services: 71 million additional Americans now receive coverage through their private health insurance plan for many preventive services without cost sharing such as copays or deductibles. That means that more Americans will receive wellness visits, cancer screenings and other services that will help them get and stay healthy. Women can now get coverage— without cost-sharing—of even more preventive services they need. Approximately 47 million women now have guaranteed access to additional preventive services without cost-sharing for policies renewing on or after August 1, 2012.

 • Coverage for people with pre-existing conditions: Over 107,000 Americans with pre-existing conditions have gained coverage through the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan. This temporary program makes health coverage available and more affordable for individuals who are uninsured and have been denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition.

 • Investing in primary care: The health care law invests in training and supporting thousands of new primary care doctors and nurses by providing bonus payments, scholarships and loan repayment, and new training opportunities.

 • Community Health Centers: Community Health Centers improve the health of the nation and assure access to quality primary health care services at more than 8,900 service delivery sites around the country. Since the beginning of 2009, health centers have increased the total number of patients served on an annual basis by 3.1 million.

Testimonials
MedWise Insurance Advocacy
“Adria . . . is an outstanding insurance advocate for many individuals and families. My family had a situation where our internal medicine physician did not have a contract with Medicare. For us to receive reimbursement from our secondary insurer, we were required to obtain a letter of denial from Medicare. We called on Adria and she was able to obtain a denial from Medicare and a reimbursement from our secondary insurer. Without Adria's assistance, I do not know if we could have ever received a compensation for our medical bills. I would highly recommend Adria to all of my friends, colleagues, and clients as an effective communicator serving as a liaison between all patients, medical providers, attorneys and insurance companies with any medical insurance problems that surface.”
