In brief: Access for all

Unfortunately, our focus in the us is on treatment rather than prevention.
However, accountable care organizations are designed to care for populations of patients rather than just hospital care. Therefore, it will be in everyone's best interest to keep people well and out of the hospital. Probably the most important part of the affordable care act is the provision for healthcare for all.

It is being fazed in that most preventive services now must be paid for by the insurance company with no copay and no deductible. This is especially helpful in taking away money as a barrier to everyone getting normal preventive services. Find out when your insurance starts covering preventive care with no out of pocket.
