Health Care Reform Bill 101
The Affordable Health Care Act
The Affordable Health Care Act is a law enacted in 2010 to comprehensively reform the
health care sector (Sommers et al., 2013). There are different terms used to refer to the Act such
as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and
Obama care. The study will use these terms interchangeably to refer to the Act. On the other
hand, healthcare reform bill is the provisions of the amendments in the provision of health care
services that seeks to repeal the current regulations in order to improve the quality of healthcare
services. For example, the American Health Care Reform Act of 2017 that amends the PPACA
and Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.

Affordable Health Care Act (AHCA) into law after approval by the Senate by a majority of 219
votes. However, before its enactment, the bill received opposition from the entire Republicans
and some 34 Democrats who voted against its implementation. Many changes were made to the

in early January next year. The intention of the changes is to restore the provisions that were
repealed under the PPACA.
