Healthcare reform in the US

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) will bring fundamental changes to the way Americans access health insurance and will also have an impact on other lines of insurance like auto, workers' compensation and medical malpractice.

The most significant opportunity for insurers is simply the numbers of people who will come into the insurance system. The ACA contains a provision that every individual must be insured and according to the US Congressional Budget Office six million people will purchase health insurance through public health exchanges in 2014, rising to more than 25 million Americans by 2018.
