Scorecard Tallies Hits, Misses of Health Care Law

March 23, 2012

The 2010 health care law, marking its second anniversary on Friday, has hit some targets and missed others, according to a scorecard compiled by Kaiser Health News.

For instance, the Preexisting Condition Insurance Program, set up to offer coverage from 2010 to 2014 for adults who have been uninsured for at least six months and who have a preexisting medical condition, is supposed to reach between 200,000 and 400,000 people, but has so far signed up just under 49,000.

But the provision allowing parents to keep children on their health insurance plans up to age 26 has been far more successful that anticipated, with 2.5 million young adults signed on. The law projected only 1.2 million would sign on.

 

You can see the full scorecard here. And Kaiser has a handy timeline of the major events since President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010.
