The Hill reports that 18 million Americans have gained access to healthcare coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act, known in many circles as ObamaCare. These findings were from a study conducted by the Urban Institute, and they are similar to another recent study that concluded that the A.C.A. allowed about 20 million Americans to have coverage.
The article stated that approximately 16.9 million Americans gained coverage through the Affordable Care Act’s marketplaces and the expansion of Medicaid, the law’s two main provisions. The remaining 1.2 million Americans are young adults who are allowed to stay on their parents’ health plans until the age of 26.
