Health Insurance Laws
Learn about some of the laws governing health care and insurance in the United States, including the Affordable Care Act, HIPAA, and others.
People with cancer can have long-term disabilities that make it hard to work or get around. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a law that helps protect the civil rights of people with disabilities.
The American Rescue Plan Act takes effect April 1, 2021. This law addresses many of the financial problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. One portion of the law focuses on lowering insurance premiums and improving access to affordable health care coverage.
HIPAA protects millions of working Americans and their families who have medical conditions or who might have trouble getting medical insurance because of a medical condition that they had before they tried to buy health insurance.
