The much-maligned Affordable Care Act – commonly referred to by the National Republican Party as Obamacare – has reduced the cost of health care insurance for many Alabamians. The 2010 law created a federal program to offer insurance for those who, because of pre-existing conditions, previously were unable to purchase affordable health insurance. The policies are a bridge to 2014, when the law prohibits insurance companies from denying such coverage.
On July 1st, the Obama administration reduced the premiums Alabamians must pay for the plans by 40 percent. While the Affordable Care Act is not perfect, its success in providing affordable insurance to Alabamians who previously could get no health insurance is one more indication that Republican calls for repeal are misguided.
