Benefits of Health Reform
Health Reform by the Numbers
1 million: The number of young adults who now have health insurance, thanks to the provision that allows them to stay a parent's health policy until their 26th birthday.
1.3 million: The number of seniors who hit the gap in Medicare prescription coverage who are now receiving a 50 percent discount on brand-name drugs.
1.3 million: The number of seniors who have already received a free Annual Wellness Visit.
17 million: The number of children who are now protected from insurers refusing to cover them because of a pre-existing condition.
19 million: The number of seniors who have already received one or more free preventive services.
165 million: The number of Americans getting better value for their health insurance dollar. Thanks to health reform, insurance companies must spend at least 80 percent of a beneficiary's premium dollar on health care, not overhead, advertising and bonuses.
