News for Families

Families have begun to ask how the changes in the Affordable Care Act that are being considered by Congress will affect them and their children. If you or your child receives services supported by Medical Assistance or you are covered by a policy purchased through a Health Care Exchange, you may be wondering whether the legislation that will repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act that has been passed by the House of Representatives (known as the American Health Care Act) will affect you. That legislation is currently being considered by the Senate. One of the more helpful tools available to help you understand how this pending legislation may affect you and the services your family receives is offered by the Kaiser Foundation.
