The Affordable Care Act, passed by Democratic majorities in the House and Senate in 2010, is designed to put you, not the health insurance companies, back in charge of your health care. This week, we celebrated the two-year anniversary since the Patient's Bill of Rights went into effect. This crucial part of the health reform law was created to stop the worst of insurance company abuses. Under the Patient's Bill of Rights, children can no longer be denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition, health plans cannot put a lifetime limit on health coverage, and children can stay on their parent's insurance until age 26.
