Health Platforms: Obama Focuses on ACA




Despite its passage a little more than a year into President Obama's first term, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) won't fully be in place until well into a potential second term.

That's why the ACA has been such a central focus of the president's healthcare platform. He wants to remain in office to oversee the law's final implementation.

Major provisions don't kick in until 2014. Among them:

A Medicaid expansion that increases the eligibility limit to 133% of the federal poverty level for states willing to participateThe individual mandate, which requires citizens and legal residents to have coverage from a qualified health plan or face a penalty

Assessing a fee of $2,000 per full-time employee, excluding the first 30 workers, on businesses with more than 50 employees that don't offer health coverageTaken together, the policies aim to increase health coverage and access for millions of uninsured Americans.
