What is included in my coverage?

Many people remain uncertain about the Affordable Care Act and the services and coverages that it provides. It is at this time that some of the Affordable Care Act’s most tangible perks are finally in place.  But what are those perks and who do they benefit?

The law now mandates that most health plans cover a set of preventive services, including shots and screening tests, with no co-payment and regardless of whether someone has met his or her yearly deductible. This means that the plans within the Affordable Care Act will provide potentially life-saving services, such as free flu shots, and will represent a positive experience for millions of average Americans without charge.
