The Affordable Care Act, also known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), was signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. The goal of the Act is to provide health care coverage to more Americans and protect existing coverage. More information about the law is available by visiting www.healthcare.gov; the Spanish version is available here.
