ACA: Fact Sheets

The Affordable Care Act – also known as health reform or “Obamacare” – was signed into law on March 23, 2010. The health reform law has affected millions of Americans, including the autism community. Health insurance is complicated; Autism Speaks wants to help you make sense of the changes under health reform.

We have developed a series of fact sheets to provide straightforward  information about some of the law’s most significant reforms and how they might affect you.
