Description
 
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) restructured the private health insurance market, set minimum standards for health coverage, created a mandate for most U.S. residents to obtain health insurance coverage, and provided for the establishment by 2014 of state-based health insurance exchanges for the purchase of private health insurance. Qualifying individuals and families will be able to receive federal subsidies to reduce the cost of purchasing coverage through the exchanges. The new law also expanded eligibility for Medicaid; amended the Medicare program in an effort to reduce the rate of its projected growth; imposed an excise tax on insurance plans found to have high premiums; and made many other changes to the tax code, Medicare, Medicaid, the Childrenäó»s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and other federal programs. ACA also created multiple new discretionary grant programs and activities and provided for each an authorization of appropriations. Funding for all of these programs and activities is subject to action by congressional appropriators. This report summarizes all the discretionary spending provisions in ACA that authorized appropriations for grant programs and other activities. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
