The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed in 2010.
The law has three goals, but the one most people are probably familiar with is that it made affordable health insurance available to more people.
The law created insurance exchanges, or marketplaces, to help consumers find the most affordable health insurance for themselves and their families.
As a freelancer, you are likely eligible to purchase health insurance through your state’s insurance exchange.
