Affordable Care Act Explained by YouToons
Still confused about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as PPACA, ACA, Health Care Reform and Obamacare)?
Wish it could be explained as easily as Schoolhouse Rock explained the life of a bill?
Well, according to DrugStoreNews, Kaiser Family Foundation has done just that.
“’The YouToons Get Ready for Obamacare’ explains the basic changes in the way Americans will get health coverage and what it will cost starting in 2014, whether it’s through their employer, Medicaid, Medicare or buying insurance on their own with the help of federal tax credits.”
Kaiser Family Foundation president Drew Altman said, “This cartoon is meant to demystify a complex law and explain what it means for you, whether you support or oppose Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act).”
Affordable Care Act ‘Toon Written and Produced by the Kaiser Family Foundation
“Written and produced by the Foundation and narrated by former ABC News anchor Charlie Gibson, a member of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, the animation was developed to inform and educate Americans about what will — and what will not — change under the (Affordable Care Act).”
