ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) or Obamacare signed by U.S. President Barack Obama in March 2010 to reduce the number of uninsured Americans and bring the nation within a whisper of universal coverage. It says that the Obamacare is divided into three areas, such the Medicaid, Medicare, and private health insurance. Moreover, the health system of the country has resulted in the complexity and bureaucracy.
