Summary:
"Americans have been barraged with fifteen times more negative than positive news about Obamacare. As a result, 40 percent of the people who dislike it actually qualified for insurance subsidies, and didn't realize it. These hardworking, middle-class families need facts, not opinions, to get all the benefits they deserve. The Affordable Healthcare Handbook presents these facts based on extensive research done using credible sources and real-life interviews with people who have personally been helped by the Affordable Healthcare Act. The manual explains basics, like: How the parts of Obamacare work together. Real-life stories describing people who have already been helped. How health insurance works. Step-by-step guides to sign up for insurance using the online exchanges. Definitions of all the key terms. This book shows how Obamacare has quietly improved healthcare since 2010. For example, free preventive care for 100 million health insurance and Medicare recipients has already lowered costs. That is because they get their conditions treated before they need to use expensive emergency room services. This handbook makes the Affordable Healthcare Act accessible to millions of Americans who want a reliable and useful guide to Obamacare. "--
