But the ACA or Obama care reform practically touches more than the healthcare segment it affects almost every related industry in America. Starting from hospitals to doctors and related and relevant sectors come under the purview of the ACA law and reforms. The Obama care reform primarily aimed to retain the policies or norms involved in Medicare, Medicaid as well as the plans made by the employer market. The law compelled the insurance market and the insurers to charge the rates as prescribed by the statements of the law. Every policyholder as well as policy seller after the introduction of the legislation became bound to or were compelled to follow the stated norms disregarding pre-existing conditions of people. As a result of which the beneficiaries of the health insurance sector faced certain adversities.
