The point of insurance is to ensure that individuals who face a catastrophic event with high costs do not end up bankrupt and destitute. Leading up to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, our health insurance system was perverse: medical bills led to more than half of all bankruptcies in the US. And of those medical bill bankruptcies, more than half had insurance when they declared bankruptcy. Having health insurance did not protect them from ending up bankrupt as a result health care costs.

I can remember watching as the Affordable Care Act (ACA/Obamacare) was passed. I was watching on our small kitchen TV in Brooklyn. I remember watching the numbers of votes for and against rise higher and higher until in the end, the law passed.

Since that time, I have given more talks than I can count about Obamacare, what it is, and what it isn't. The misconceptions and misunderstandings about Obamacare continue to this day.

Hoosiers who receive tax subsidies to reduce the cost of their health insurance through the Affordable Care Act say they’re celebrating after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling protecting those subsidies.

Nearly 160,000 Hoosiers have subsidies that reduce the cost of their insurance by an average of $320 per month.
