Health insurance under 'Obamacare'
Under the Affordable Care Act, in the next 10 years it is estimated that more people under 65 will be covered by Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, and by employment-based insurance. Fewer will fall under non-group coverage, which includes Medicare, more will obtain coverage from health insurance exchanges, and fewer will be uninsured. Read related article.
