Since its rollout in 2008, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – also known as Obamacare – has had to overcome a number of hurdles.
One of the first is the infamously problematic rollout of website signup.
The ACA has also faced a number of legal challenges, managing to retain its footing through all of them.
Most recently, the U.S. Supreme Court reinforced the legal status of ACA reimbursements in all 50 states, whether or not a statewide health insurance exchange exists.
As a result, millions of Americans now enjoy better and more affordable healthcare coverage and a wider variety of coverage options.
Some of the most notable new benefits go to drug addicts, who now receive health insurance coverage for recovery from addiction to prescription drugs like Adderall and Xanax at the same level as other forms of medical care.
